I do not know for any of you, but nobody made me sign something before I
became a committer. And I will sue the ASF for that :-D

The process of actually receiving commit access on cvs.apache.org after
being voted upon is sketchy at best. There's no support or guidelines
except for what you can obtain from your peers [1]. For fledgling [2]
projects, almost everything is sketchy. Most of the knowledge needed to
do some efficient Apache contribution (at least the process part of it)
is hidden in the minds of long-time contributors which sometimes have
limited bandwidth. But that was not the topic of this discussion, wasn't
it?

[1] Thanks, John, for helping me out on this for Forrest. I hope I
became a good student :-)
[2] And thanks for David for adding this new word to my English
vocabulary, and learning me how to spell it right ;-)
