Yes, we do not accept a project if we're not prepared to grant commit access
to those who have worked on the code.  Again, the perception we are on the
verge of fostering is that the meritocracy only happens here and for
communities (like Wicket) where people have earned their access elsewhere,
we are saying that we do not respect that as we will let the mentors by fiat
decide who is worthy or not.

I don't care much about the sidestepping of meritocracy: the community will
not be able to graduate until they are diverse - hence the problem is
self-correcting.  If they can't gather a diverse collection of people, then
no dice.

I am concerned that we may permit PPMCs who view it as their right to refuse
access to people who have actively contributed in the past and want to
continue contributing because they don't like them personally or their
employer or feel that they are not leadership material.  Those aren't
grounds for barring access.  -- justin
