I like commit to mean the patch has been tested and reviewed by at least
one person beyond the author. It needs to mean something more than
has-patch. I look to see who adds the commit tag and give more weight
to those I know. I'm more confident in the commit worthyness of a patch
when other regular contributors give it the commit tag. But, anyone who
has tested the patch can add the tag. You can also add a comment to the
bug saying you tested or reviewed it.
