I think every dev here experienced this thrill and pride of having his 
own code going into the CVS. This is part of what motivates to go 
further and continue contribution until one day someone nominates you to 
be a committer.

This then another thrill, as you anxiously wait for the vote results 
(even if I never saw a negative vote on new committers) and another 
pride when you got the CVS access. But a lot of responsibility too, 
since there's no more a "committer proxy" filtering your work.

But it's not just about having commit rights and your email 
and blablabla. It's about being part of this awesome group of friends. 
This is where the real pleasure is.

Keep up the good work !
