Subject Re: Revisit policy that all IPMC members have commit privs to all incubator repositories.

That conclusion sounds pretty scary in isolation.

But if taken along the garden path in small steps, it seems really very
right.

Given that under this proposal any IPMC member could get access to anything
needed, I don't see any particular loss.

Also, with reasonable whimsy tooling, the maintenance could be made pretty
easy.
