In Serbian Wikipedia, on the other hand, there was a lax policy 
regarding admin/bureau. promotions. Namely, after 1 month of active 
contributions, you could become an admin and after 1 more month, a 
bureaucrat. That has changed in the past half a year or so. Now, with 
regards to some recent situations, I wouldn't be surprised if the policy 
becomes ever so restrictive. I, for example, became an admin in 11 days 
(fastest in sr: wikipedia). :) But that was more than a year ago...
