If I understood Roy, and it is VERY likely that I didn't, he didn't ask
that each httpd committer was given APR commit access, he just asked that
each httpd commiter was also put in the APR group.  If those people aren't
put in the apr avail list, then they don't have commit access to APR.  The
biggest problem I see with this, is that the person creating the account
will have to remember to do this put the person in both accounts, and that
is non-intuitive.
