You _don't need to have commit access_ to do either of those things.

Do you want examples?  One of the reasons Subversion 1.7.0-rc1 did not
become GA is that one of our users pointed out that the new backend was
missing some trait that 1.6 had had.  We pulled the entire new backend
over that, and released rc2 --- and eventually 1.7.0 proper --- without
that backend.
