For the record, I wasn't hired from 'upstream' and I'm not in the
development group so they may have different procedures, but I certainly
didn't get any automatic packaging privileges when I joined, I went
through the sponsorship process just like any other contributor.

As other replies suggest, I think the procedure in this case doesn't
differ from any other. Being a coder does not automatically make you a
proficient packager, it's just the same as the converse (we wouldn't
assume a good packager was a good hacker).
