I will attend to this straight away, but it will take a while before it shows 
up on the site itself.

If you are real serious about helping out, try to make life easier by posting 
the patch, in which case you can cut down on the surrounding explainations.

Patches are most easily generated by the "cvs diff" command.
For instance;
   cvs -q diff  filename  >somename.patch

That helps a lot.

As for committer status; 
1. See page http://jakarta.apache.org/site/roles.html
2. Avalon is perhaps somewhat more lenient than many other Apache projects, 
and put more emphasis on quality than on time (some require continuing 
dedication for 6months or more)
3. Commitment towards the project is expressed in, qualified feedback, 
participation in ongoing design/coding discussions, patches, wiki updates, 
suggestions and also stuff like helping your peers. Basically anything that 
moves us forward.
4. You shouldn't feel that you are trying hard to get committer status, it 
should be fun and natural, and one day you will be asked.

Keep up the good spirit.
