I'm not sure I would phrase our unwritten policy in quite that way.
We don't just blindly trust anyone, we do however place great trust in
those who have earned it by their demonstrated commitment to being
good citizens of our community or the larger FOSS community to which
we belong.  Gonzalo has certainly earned that trust.

I personally see it as being somewhat "reputation capital" based, with
reputation earned in other projects (e.g. Fedora, etc.) also being an
acceptable currency.  People who have invested in building reputation
capital will not squander it foolishly.

I have every confidence Gonzalo will "do the right thing".

Just a thought.
