I do not know for any of you, but nobody made me sign something before I

The process of actually receiving commit access on 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


[1] Thanks, John, for helping me out on this for Forrest. I hope I
became a good student :-)
