I just remembered about this, and came back to check and probably action 
the request. But it's already done. I think doing it here rather than 
adding core-dev to the team is okay, as it avoids the bug mail issues 
that Colin pointed out.

So as of now all of ~ubuntu-core-dev can push to Ubiquity. I think for 
code changes we should still maintain the practice of seeking peer 
review though - perhaps this expands the pool of reviewers, if anyone 
feels confident in doing so but weren't in the installer team before. :)
