I think we may want to define or stick to a definition of "contributor". We
may have people signing a CLA and/or a code grant but not wanting to become
a committer (maybe they've lost interest in the code alltogether), nor would
you want people to get committer priviledges and responsibilities just be
throwing some code at us.

Looks pretty good, but what a pain to implement! :-)

I think we should strive to maximize throughput of this process. Using SVN
is a good example, perhaps having some commandline tools to aid all this
makes sense as well.
