The thing that is missing is still the same, how do we consider that
someone is a contributor. IE, do we want people just say "add me" and
get root access to all our jenkins builder (because that's also what go
with jenkins way of restarting a build for now) ?

I did the technical stuff, but so far, no one did the organisational
part of giving a criteria for who has access to what. Without clear
process, I can't do much.
