The normal process for contributors before they are committers is to
pass their patches to a committer who would review them and commit them.
Does that satisfy your requirement?

I do think we need to treat the committer role reasonably seriously,
but I would be receptive to a new-committer motion for someone without
much of a track record on the project if there was an existing committer
who spoke well of their capability and offered to monitor their
contributions for a while.

Is that reasonable?
