At least for me, it is important that I am part of a community of
Debian developers. I wouldn't want to do the work while being
kept outside that community, and I wouldn't feel able to take
responsibility for my packages if I have to depend on someone
else's goodwill just to upload bugfixes.
When I joined Debian, the process took a week or so. If it had
taken many months, I would have felt unwanted and I would have
left to join a different community instead.
I leave it up to the audience to decide whether that would have
been a good or a bad thing :-)
