That's not the point.  For everything we add to Ant, we promise to
support it in the future.  We won't any task where we (the current
committers) do not feel like we can do that.

You earn commit access to antlibs the same way you do for any ASF
project.  You keep submitting patches that are considered "good" by
the current committers until they become sick of committing them and
they make you a committer so you can do it yourself.

Yes, this takes a bit of time.
