Subject Change to commit model for Apache Geronimo

Due to concerns about how some changes have been getting
made in the codebase, I am changing the commit model
for the time being.

Effective immediately, the development model for Apache
Geronimo is changed from Commit-Then-Review to
Review-Then-Commit.

This means that all code changes that aren't for
documentation or a specific bug fix need to be
submitted as patches to the dev@geronimo.apache.org
list before getting committed.  They can get applied
after three other committers have voted +1 -- which
in this mode means 'I have applied this patch and
tested it and found it good' -- and no committers
have vetoed it.

I'm doing this to put to rest widespread concerns
that development in Geronimo *isn't* being done
entirely in the open.  It's a drastic step, but
those concerns have been around for a while and
just don't seem to be going away.

This also means that everyone needs to take interest
in the changes being proposed for the code.  Everyone
knowing more about what everyone else is doing isn't
a bad thing, and cooperating more to get them made
isn't a bad thing either.
