I don't consider that rude at all - I consider that right.

Too much "turf" in the Commons - I think this is the main reason why 
projects stagnate.  People assume that "somebody else" is taking care of 
project X - I've found that they usually are not.

If there is a project with shotty documentation or typos, the expectation
should be that it can be fixed by *anyone* with commit rights.  Broken
windows should be fixed by whomever has the itch and the karma, if another
committer doesn't like a change then -1 it.
