When XML Commons was transferred over to the Xerces PMC I don't believe
anything changed with respect to who has commit privileges. At least there
was no intention of removing anyone. I'm not sure how one checks who
actually has write-access, but I suspect the list includes many folks
who've never committed to the project before and possibly aren't aware that
they can.
