I didn't mean with my original email that we'd bypass that process -
just that I'd like all commits to go through review here (apart from
minor, mechanical fixes)

Of course, if we get submissions from people without an ICLA, we will
follow the proper Apache process.

Sounds reasonable. As for git-svn, it's mostly a convenience for how
people who are used to git will work locally. There's nothing keeping
anybody from working with svn directly (though maintaining patches
locally and posting them, for example, is quite a bit more awkward)
