This typically comes up only for a minority of committers:

*   People who became committers on another Apache TLP before becoming a
    committer on an Incubator podling (as opposed to people who join the
    Incubator first and are thus already in the `incubator` ldap group after
    Secretary processes their ICLA.)
*   People who need to access Jenkins and thus need `` run.

The stopgap is that we have a number of PMC Chairs on the IPMC, and if you
send a request to private@incubator someone can take care of it for you.  The
volume so far has been manageable.
