And just in case someone wants to imply that newbies can't get an account 
under that scheme: no, that's wrong. They just need to acknowledge that they 
are aware of their limitations in version control or open collaboration, and 
that because of this they won't randomly commit code into other modules that 
they have no clue about.

So, trust doesn't need to be coupled with technical expertise, just with 
responsibility and knowledge of one's own skills.
