I'm not arguing that removing people from the list of committers was
correct, I don't have the insight into the particular situation here,
so I'll leave that to the mentors.  I'm just objecting to the idea
that it's impossible to contribute without commit access.  If these
people were really anxious to start helping out I would have expected
to see more than "when's my commit coming" from them.
