We could consider setting up a totally separate SVN repo for this, because
the svn-authorization file would be the authoritive source of "tainting

Expanding on what I said in my other e-mail, "committer" is something that
has many non-legal connotations here at the ASF. It might make sense to
define all or most of this in terms of contributors. WDYT?
