Well, a new PMC Member would need to be added to the PMC ACL.  Normally I
do those, myself, but take the next few days, for example.  :-)  Why hold
Dave up waiting for me?  Or, for that matter, a new commiter who needs to
be added to the project specific ACL?

Incubator PMC members already have SVN karma for *everything* under
incubator/, and should not need to be added to other Incubator ACLs.

Let's change Mentor to PMC Member, in that change you just made.  Subtle,
but not entirely without distinction.
