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.
