I fully agree on this part. While its good to be overall a bit
conservative about handing out such permissions illy willy but and the
end of the day it always boils down to trust. For me I think Frederik
earned a fair portion of trust in the community and among the team as a
bug wrangler and TU. On top be seems very eager and motivated to tackle
multiple outstanding topics where he can bring in his experience.

Taking both sides into consideration, from my side its a +1 to get him
