This is more or less 'it' in a nutshell.  There is one extra
requirement that they have a uploadable set of files, mainly for legal
reasons.  That's pretty much all there is to it.

In my case, I've asked pavel to email me patches for git.  The
reasoning is that we'll have a log of emails complete with files that
can be tarballed and submitted to Google easily.  I've asked him not
to ask for permission to participate in our git instance, although he
really does need to sign up for our trac.  He also needs to be signed
up for the wiki, and a few mailing lists.  His participation is
supposed to be the same as anyone else's with the notable exception of
the 'hgsmolt' group.
