The original problem I raised was allowing individual users to update
the Attic website to fix problems.

I suggested enabling the attic Unix group for this - rather than
attic-pmc as at present - but this was not universally liked.

There is less overhead voting in a committer compared with a PMC member.

But a one-off vote to allow @members adds a lot of potential
committers without need for further individual votes.
