As you may have seen, the page has been corrected to say that any ASF
committer can get access to the sandbox (not just Jakarta committers).

If you're not an ASF committer, then I think the current policy is that
no, you can't get commit access to the sandbox. However if you have
provided a good set of patches to the ASF members who created the
sandbox project, they can always nominate you as a commons committer (or
any other relevant ASF project) which then gives you access to the
sandbox too.

The main issue with having commit access is that you need to have signed
the appropriate legal forms. And also access control isn't
per-sandbox-project, but across the whole sandbox, so people need to
know you a bit first before granting that.
