Can we use the normal server access policy for this? If you're trusted and have a demonstrable need, you can ask for and receive Gerrit administrator access?

We need a dedicated policy. Granting Gerrit administrative rights is a lot more responsibilities and require a lot of trust. It is the same level as granting rights to the puppet repository.

That doesn't really explain why the existing server access policy isn't sufficient, when that's what is currently used to grant access to the puppet repository AIUI.
