Also, I assume that if we install ACL support on gnome cvs, individual
maintainers can set up their modules for open commit from anyone.
You may even keep a module open commit most of the time, but limit commits
close to an important release (can the ACL support handle different ACLs
for different branches? If so, that would be really useful for this sort
of thing). Just because ACL support is available, doesn't mean you have
to make use of it.
