I don't really think so. I think we should make this much more concrete. 
Does anyone have someone they want to propose as core developer ? 
Personally, I think that this should just happen naturally, with 
possibly a more proactive call (like yours) once in a while.

Do you have anyone specific in mind ? Who are the people who have 
contributed much in the form of addons ?

I think that anyone who has a candidate should just propose to the PSC, or ?

That will probably still take some time, so I think that if there are 
candidates we should invite them now.

But as you say, git might help incite more people to "just" contribute...
