I like having QA and docs as committers on projects. QA should be  
putting test cases into the code base and the only alternative is to  
have a separate project for QA.

Similarly, docs are a very important part of a project and having the  
docs right there with the code is a plus for me.

Both QA and docs as proposed committers means to me that this project  
already has mature processes in place that will be good for the
