Perhaps not, but you can help the process along by adding your perspective.
Does it solve a problem you have?  Does it run on your platform?  Can you
provide further examples?  Can you add missing parts to what's already there
(doc changes, test cases)?

These are general questions which won't be appropriate for every issue in
the tracker, but are some ways Python users without checkin privileges can
help the development process.

You might want to peruse some of the links on this page:

    http://www.python.org/dev/

That might give you some insight into the Python development process and how
you fit into it.
