Anyone who wishes.  There is a commit mail list.  A PMC is only needed
for projects that act (as in distribute software) on behalf of the ASF.

That is incubator.

It should be the way to share temporary workspaces. It should not 
incubator --- anything that wants to distribute code should go through
incubator because we want to create a self-governing project around it.

Incubator can create its own cvs modules by project name, even for 
that are just starting and have only one or two committers.  As soon as
the project is identifiable, it should have its own lists and modules.
The committers module is more for the pre-project idea and pre-commons
fooling around stage.

No objection to creating an incubator subdirectory under committers,
or for creation of an incubator module open to all committers.
