Technically the person would have to be sponsored.  Right now the only
documented way to get sponsored is to bring a new package to the
party.  However the tool will allow somebody to apply for cvsextras and
somebody else to approve them, without a new package being involved.
We just don't have any written guidelines on allowing this to happen.
