Historically, commit access to jakarta-commons-sandbox has been granted on
request to any *Jakarta* committer.  I personally don't have any problem
with widening that rule to any Apache committer, which would therefore
include Leo automatically (he has commit access on Avalon, which used to
be a Jakarta sub-project but is now top level).  Does any other
Commons-Dev committer or Jakarta PMC member have any problem with that?
