I also agree. It would be interesting to hear Anils take on this since 
some projects have given their GSoC people "simple committership".  I 
did check with Anil that he understood why we were not doing that, but 
it was a private discussion so I don't want to repeat his words.

Anil, perhaps you can give us a sentence or two on your take on this. Do 
you feel that it would be better for you to have simple committership or 
to work, as you are doing.
