Why not just recruit bug wranglers either as staff or as developers without repository access? Once there is some practical experience with project specific bug wranglers further refinements could be put in place, if for example the staff quiz was insufficiently technical and the developer quizzes were overly technical for screening qualified bug wranglers. One advantage of using this approach is that it could be implemented now without waiting through the GLEP process.

Yes, that could done this way - Gentoo Bug Wranglers Project does not specify any requirements for bug wranglers so I guess it's safe to assume that they could be (so far) recruited as staff. My proposal still would be valid - to introduce project-specified bug wranglers (it is necessary to narrow the scope thus lowering requirements). Where should I proceed to make it 'legal'?

Ask a project lead if they want a bug wrangler, remind them that staff recruiting is valid for that role and that the recruiting process is simpler for staff. Bringing a finished quiz might help your case, just wait for them to mention it before offering it. Most of the answers are in the "Gentoo Developer Handbook", though others hide places like a GLEP or even a list of lists. If you are already involved to some extent with the project mentoring should be fairly easy to come by, and in some cases it is largely a formality even then.
