That's not how the ASF works or has ever worked. It's for
this exact reason why there is confusion and discussion
(still) about commit privs for podlings... commit privs
have always been a relatively high bar for people to
meet, but one that we've *always* had open for
people. We don't "blacklist" people from commit
privs because they work for a specific company
or because the don't work for a specific company,
for example. If you earn it, you get it.

The thing with podlings is that what's meant by
"earning" it is much lower... it should still
exist, however.
