On list - not necessarily to have it on the record, but everything
happens on list ;-)

In my Apache book the default is that I'm allowed to touch anything if
I know what I'm doing and if I can reasonably expect that I'm not
getting in the way of the work being done on that code.

But I'm also ready to back out if someone asks me to - svn makes it
easy to revert any unwanted changes, so if asked I will revert.

Of course, sometimes someone will ask for a code freeze on some part
of the code, or tell others that they're doing major changes somewhere
and expect to be left alone for a bit, that's fine. Or we kick them
out to their own branch if that gets in the way of the overall
progress.

I'd try to keep it simple, and address issues if/as they come up.
