I think this is good as a basis to expand upon. We can certainly
explain more what we mean by a community volunteer and how this will
work (probably  craft a sketch like the one we had on the whiteboard).

This will be common for all projects under IdPy. I think it is a bit
cumbersome to have it replicated on all repositories. Maybe we can
have it as part of the governance repo (and later on the website) and
have any other projects point there. What do you think?
