Why even bother with that? it is usually so much easier to give out
commit access to people who already are committers - if we hold off on
that type of "piling on" until after the proposal has been accepted,
then we're sure that the podling want those people on there, and we
don't risk voting on a proposal that is skewed by various people adding
themselves because they can.
Sure, I think podling should be open to taking active committers (from
non-incubator projects) onto the list without much fuss, but that's
different from opening the gates to everyone, will get roughly as many
people committing on the project and doesn't have the same avenues for
abuse as your position.
