I suggest we let any ASF committer who *wants* to be a committer on  
droids be a committer.  Unless there are tons of requests to  
root@apache, I'm not sure I see the value it having global write access.

As for the PMC, I'm fine with every committer being on the PMC (though  
- of course - it does not make sense if all ASF committers are on the  
PMC).  But I think this will depend more on if it becomes a TLP or sub  
project.  In practice I don't see it really making a difference, as  
Grant noted, every vote I have seen (in solr) does not treat PMC/ 
committers/public any different -- a -1 is usually a -1 for good reason.

In my opinion, the only need for a semi-private group dedicated to  
droids is to discuss and decide what non-committers should become  

I think we can use the droids committer status as a way to signify  
commitment/involvement in a project rather then a way to exclude  
contribution.  I think we can have an inclusive committer policy  
without tossing the general model.
