Other then these guides, you might find interesting something we have
prepared in Tuscany while we were still in incubating with some
concrete scenarios that might help you get involved.

You earn committership per project. Also note that each project might
have different levels of requirements to earn committership.

If you are a active committer in a Incubator project, you are going to
still be committer when the project graduates. In summary, you won't
loose what you have already earned trough meritocracy... in some
cases, when projects graduate to existing TLP, you might get access to
more areas of the SVN related to the TLP.
