If we go down this route I'd rather see packagers have a way they can
get proven tester status without needing mentor approval, but not just get
it. I'd rather have a place where you read up on the expectations for
proven testers and then click a button that says I'll do that.
practically speaking that would change very little, because we're not
blocked on getting moderator approval at present. Thankfully a lot of
people are taking up the moderator duties, so anyone who actually
applies to be a proventester usually gets a reply from a moderator
almost immediately. The idea is to remove the active 'apply for the
status' step from developers.
