git is tied to LDAP, and all podling repos are writable by anyone in
the incubator LDAP group. (there are no podling LDAP groups)

svn is far more fine grained. By default (I think) if you don't create
a podling group, anything under the Incubator's tree in SVN is
writable by any member of the incubator. But you can certainly create
a group and make it more restrictive.
