I wasn't trying to block anyone from being a committer anywhere they  
want to be. I was trying to make a first pass at where I thought  
people would want to be committers. Any committer can and should ask  
on this thread to stay on all three sub-projects, if they want to. PMC  
members automatically have commit rights on all of the sub-projects,  
so it is largely irrelevant for them.

Of course in the future there are 3 distinct lists, so they will  
naturally drift.

It was naturally adhoc, but it should not cause controversy. The  
choice is completely up to the individual committer. I tried to make  
that clear. All I was trying to do was set up the default values to  
minimize the number of emails that people had to send me.
