Subject RE: Policy on Initial Committership

How could they contribute when they were not given access?  These guys
have been asking for two weeks or more to be allowed to contribute, and
in some cases did not even receive a reply.

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

individuals are basically stating that since there name was on the
that is enough to get the commit rights.

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