That's not it.   The issue is they have been barred access to a project they 
have only expressed interest in contributed to.   They have not yet 
contributed anything (no code, no patches, little to no communication on the 
dev list, etc...).   That is why the CXF mentors decided it was 
in-appropriate to give them commit access.   There name was on the initial 
proposal, but after two months, there was still no contributions.  Those 
individuals are basically stating that since there name was on the proposal, 
that is enough to get the commit rights.

Basically, Jason and the other mentors thought the initial commiters should 
actually be those who contribute/commit stuff.   Those who don't meet that 
barrier haven't earned the commit rights, so why should they have commit
