The rough guideline is that a Contributor should have at least 8 
significant contributions before being nominated. There's a lot of 
interpretation and wriggle room in that guidelines but I wonder if
are sufficient significant contributions in this case to support the 
nomination at this time.

To me, "rough guideline" is the keyword.

reasonable to me at this point. Do you have specific concerns, or
should we just wait a little longer for some more contributions of
Andrew to get in?
