Yes, other projects can still commit to "xml-commons", currently:
xml-pmc cocoon forrest lenya xalan xerces xerces-j xml-commons xml-xindice xmlgraphics-batik
xmlgraphics-fop

The Xerces PMC could enable other project groups to
have authorisation too.

There must be some lack with the script to build Jim's pages,
as http://people.apache.org/~jim/projects.html#xml-commons
just shows a basic group of extra people.

The script is in his home directory if someone can make
a patch for him.
