  <H1>Policies for CVS commits.</H1>
  We are exploring a new system to help speed development,
  "commit-then-review".  With a commit-then-review, we trust that
  committers have a high degree of confidence in their committed patches
  - higher than the typical [PATCH] post to new-httpd.  This is an
  attempt to come up with a standard we expect those with commit access
  to hold up to.
  <LI> The CVS tree should be expected to compile at all times
  <LI> Experimental new features must be discussed before implemented
  <LI> The committer is responsible for the quality of the third-party code
     they bring into the code.
  <LI> Related changes should be posted at once, or very closely together;
     no half-baked projects in the code.
  <LI> Any changes:</BR>
    <LI>which affect symantics of arguments to directives 
    <LI>which would have to be implemented differently on other architectures
    <LI>which significantly add to the runtime size of the program
  need to be discussed on new-httpd before it gets committed, even experimentally.
  <LI> A patch must be reversed if the equivalent of a "veto" comes from
  another developer with commit access.
