I used to have commit access a long time ago, but I eventually gave it up. I 
think the main reason was that I felt unconfortable having commit access to all 
Guix repositories (I only wanted access to guix-artwork at that time). I 
sometimes felt I was a security hole, specially when dealing with GPG, which I 
still find intimidating.

As for reviewing patches or just taking a look at reported issues against parts 
of Guix one is interested, it would be easier if there were some kind of 
subscription system. Say, I'd like to subscribe to issues on Python packages, 
Spanish translation, and guix-artwork. I know this kind of subscription thing 
has been mentioned before, though.
