I don't know abut the IPMC itself, but I always try to communicate
that to podlings I mentor with a "commit priveleges not rights" kind
of email after the first committer is voted in (or earlier if
discussions take a "we must protect ourselves" turn).

Yes, I encourage all my podling projects to use slightly modified
versions of the templates over on ComDev [1], although I discovered
today that there are templates in Incubator too.

I just added the following to that template, based on the quote above:
"These privileges are offered on the understanding that you'll use
them reasonably and with common sense. We like to work on trust rather
than unnecessary constraints."
