I'm in this too--just make sure you don't encourage the SysAdmin to
remove an account for someone who is an active committer on other
projects (like me).

It was humorous.  I had a contract to work on Axis.  By the time I
got committer access, the contract period of performance was over,
and the company didn't have enough money to keep it going. :(

In the mean time, I have been beat down with my time.  So unless anyone
wants to give me another contract I should probably have my karma
removed for this project.  I don't see my situation changing any time
in the near future.
