Simple: it's not about the commit privileges, but about the ability to 
cast a binding vote. Funny as it seems, Cocoon, the project I'm chairing 
ATM, has quite a few community members with 'technical karma) who don't 
regularly/ever contribute patches, but participate in discussions, and 
can cast real votes, even can become member of our PMC. I know I'm 
freaking out people describing such a hideous situation, but it works 
rather well over there. ;-)
