Actually, we don't use ACLs at all. We simply tell them "only commit
in your designated area". We haven't ever had a problem with that

Even better: if the committer gets a +1 on a patch from somebody with
"full" access, then they can go ahead and commit outside their area.
It makes it very easy when the contributors can commit their own
patches :-)
