I had cause to try this out recently, and I found I could check out
xml-xalan (using my Apache ID, not anoncvs), but I couldn't update it.

Got a message about not enough Karma :>.  As I understand it, there is
some work that has been done to give people in a project read access to
all sub-projects, but only write access to specific ones.

At the moment we are all assuming that an x/y majority means that y
represents the entire population of voters (almost an Australian style
democracy, where we are required to vote by law :>).  Wouldn't it be
better to have y to represent the total number of people who decide to
vote on a given issue in a given time period?

It's also in line with the incubator voting document that Ted referenced
in another e-mail.
