There's no need to "become a Harvester" to help with the harvesting 
What we need is reviews. Those termed "harvesters" just have the power 
to an [approve] or [close]. This is no problem, this is fast to do. 
What takes
*ages* is the whole stuff that needs to be done before that: Has this 
allready been fixed? Does the fix work? Is the code good enough? Does it
conflict with any change allready accepted? Is it the correct format 
(not .zip, not
BinHex). And so on...

Of course, those who do a lot of review will at some point get 
[approval] power,
after everyone is sure that this is the right thing to do.

Just install BFAV, read the stuff on the wiki about harvesting and 
BFAV, and try
to comment on some changes.
