I'm not sure that there will be an issue.  It could just be a couple of
IPMC members being a little more cautious that needed.  It's more than
likely no one's going to care.

To date, we have always told podlings that the initial committers and your
mentors are the ones who have write access.  Now we're saying if you're
using git, it's any of the 1k + (i might be way off) members of the
incubator group.

Would it be much harder to create the ldap group up front when the
podling's created, and shuffle people in/out at graduation?
