Hi Rob,

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with such a low bar.  I'd like to know a
list of core committers, any one of which could give a "+1" for
someone, and so long as there isn't an objection from anyone else
after a fixed period (for example: 4 days), we'd grant access.
Ideally, the list of core committers would actually live in a text
file in the SVN repository.
This makes sense. The currently active committers would probably be xqt, multichill and myself. Purodha and siebrand are less active. I have no idea how busy xqt is, but for multichill, siebrand and myself I think I can argue we are quite busy. This means even replying to this e-mail took me a while - actually checking commit access requests probably takes an even longer time.

However, we do read commit logs. This means granting access and complaining afterwards is easier for us - but of course not for you, as server administrator ;-)

Anyway, I think the +1 system might be the best 'polder'solution[1]. As such, I'll reply to your mail about Lewis shortly.
