You don't need it -- my suggestion was that people that have the
technical know-how (i.e. not necessarily in terms of code but also the
relevant tag specs) vet the patches and leave comments for Scott
detailing whether they think the patches are good/valid, whether they
apply/compile cleanly, and if they've been run through any tests with files.

Scott can still commit the patches and close the bugs -- he just doesn't
have to do all the busywork himself.
