Hi Ross,

Yes, I am asking here because of lack of consensus in the Flex project.
In this particular scenario the Flex TLP has received a donation from
non-committers.  I know one of our mentors mentioned that he was given
committer rights to different project for bringing in a code base after
that project got started.  Most of the Flex PMC seems to agree, but I was
looking for data from other projects to support this.
