If you will compare
http://incubator.apache.org/projects/openofficeorg.html with
http://people.apache.org/committer-index.html you will find that all the
committers on the first list are listed on the second list.  All have
submitted ICLAs and had an Apache ID and password issued by root@.

Anyone can submit patches but only committers can apply those patches.

To "directly contribute" a person has to be a committer, which at this
point means indirect submissions.  Once they prove themselves they can
be invited to be a full committer but then they have to have the ICLA on
file.
