Although I don't have any true opposition to this (and who am I to even talk
on this list) but as I read the Jakarta-Project Guildelines and as a person
who has contributed a Taskdef that went nowhere, here are my opinions.  Take
them for what they are worth:

As I understood it Developers cannot commit, however they do contribute
source code and patches.

I would expect either a responsible Committers and/or the Project Management
Committee to be reviewing these submissions and committing them or posting a
rejection for some reason.

I know this puts more work on the volunteers of this project but having
"unofficial" repositories causes fragmented areas throught the web where one
can only get half the answers.

Well taht is my opinion for what it counts.
