I guess you make them a committer in ivy; they get access to both.

-there's almost no security risk in ant changes; its hard for anyone to 
deliberately stick a back door in, the way you could with Xerces or Axis.

-biggest risk is just making backwards-incompatible changes to classes 
and tasks.

-All commits on ant get looked by other people; its pretty hard to get 
away with something drastic except in a commit so big the mailer doesn't 
send it to the group (>100K of change). We'd ask some hard questions if 
a change that big went in, as it is incredibly rare.
