At one point there was the suggestion that we give everyone (all user
accounts) canconfirm and editbugs permissions.  I thought that was too
much, since a random user, confused by BZ could accidentally remove a
critical bug from our attention by making the wrong changes.

But the general idea was to make these permissions widely available
upon request.  So not just committers, but anyone who asks for them.

So I would not object to adding volunteers to "qa-team".
