It really depends on the project. I don't think there are enough cases of code coming into
an existing project via SGA to be able to say "most projects". Fact is most have never faced
this issue. I could give you my personal opinion but I'm pretty sure someone on this list
would have a different opinion. This is something best discussed with the receiving project
and brought here if there is a lack of consensus.

If the code is coming in as a new project then the normal incubating proposal process sees
a list of initial committers - in other words for a new project then it would be expected
that all original contributors (that wanted to come along) would be given commit rights. Though
whether that is the case or not depends on the proposers/champion/mentor.

Subject: Code Donations and Committer Righs

I'd like to know: if a code base is donated to Apache under a Software Grant, do most projects
grant committer rights to the code authors at the same time or do most projects require that
the donors submit patches as other non-committers normally do?
