I've done a quick scan of issues Brian is nosy on to refresh my
memory, and I'd say he's definitely been making positive contributions.
I'm willing to volunteer to keep an eye on his triage work for a while
if you grant him tracker privs.

Brian, I assume you'll be cognizant of Antoine's advice about making
sure a bug really should be closed before closing it :)  Hanging out in
#python-dev on freenode while working on issues can be helpful, as well,
since you can quickly ask whoever is there for second opinions on
particular bugs.
