In fact I meant the opposite, but I've not been clear, sorry.

The fact is that having commit access does not mean that you can 
necessarily vote. Having commit access is not a license to kill, as we 
can easily revert changes. It's just like getting into the camp, and be 
able to work there, but without taking long-term decisions.

Note that usual decisions should take place without the tedious process 
of formal votes if possible.
