The barrier on entry is rather low to enable something in the nightly. 
It is your responsibility to make sure we don't get tons of bug reports, 
crashes, or security issues.

You need to have okay test coverage and make sure the tests work on all 
the ports (if relevant for the given platforms obviously).

Then you just make a patch and post the link to the bug on the mailing 
list. :)
