And for the record, I fought with the Ant committers fairly  
vigorously to get my first patches committed, and continued to make a  
nuisance of myself by fixing bugs, documentation, and prodding for  
things to get committed when they sat in Bugzilla.  And the same  
thing happened with me and Lucene and Tapestry.

We're a meritocracy - do things of merit and you earn karma.  But, it  
does require perseverance.
