Oh, [community] is separate, and so is its team. A package maintainer
of [core] and/or [extra] may or may not have any business in
[community]. If she doesn't have any business, she doesn't need access
to the server.

Granted, this is a little different since it's the first time we've
had something like a "Junior Developer", AFAICR. However, I believe we
should give them benefit of the doubt when recommended by a developer.
If anything (bad) happens, the brokeit panic button sends a jolt up
someone by default. We need not worry :)
