Welcome Jeremias!

I've updated your karma so you have access to this repository, but there's
one remaining infrastructure detail to deal with -- the way that unix
groups are set up on  There's a group for each project
(for our purposes, jakarta and xml are the relevant ones), plus a group
for all people with CVS commit access (apcvs).  CVS repositories have a
group ownership by ... you guessed it ... the relevant project.  Thus,
jakarta-commons-sandbox currently has a group owner of "jakarta", and
Jeremias still can't access it.

I can think of two options to deal with this:

(1) Have each XML (or wherever) committer also ask to be added
    to the "jakarta" group when they want access to

(2) Change the group ownership of jakarta-commons-sandbox
    from "jakarta" to "apcvs" so it automatically includes

The latter option is what happened to Gump when it was decided that all
Apache committers could update it; therefore, I recommend we go that way.
What do you think?
