So commit bits are handed out freely to anyone who asks?

Some background: I used to be involved in Perl 6 development (Raku)
and Autrijius did just that--anyone who wanted a commit bit got one.
Highly decentralized, but by necessity there was some centralization
in terms of where the repo was hosted.

P.S. Posting to 9front in case this is too off-topic for 9fans.

There was never a formal process for getting commit access to
code.9front.org.  Generally someone would ask for it in the irc channel,
and if nobody objected after a little while I'd just add them.  Ori's
currently hosting the git repo, so I'll let him chime in on that if he
wants.

Nothing's changed, beyond the people you ask. I run
the file server, sl runs the auth server, so we both
need to create accounts with a matching username.

I'd prefer to see patches before handing out commit
access, but so far everyone that's asked has gotten
a commit bit.

it's a simple rule:

if your patches (on mailinglist or irc) are nice, and you send them
often enough, somebody will make sure you get commit access
