Part of the problem here is that it is *very* hard to say "don't commit".
That implies a certain amount of "I have more say in the project, and I
can tell you what to do." Even supposing that that right is conferred on
the "core team" (as you put it) by the community, I would posit that they
would be quite uncomfortable exercising that right.

Instead, I believe it is more about individual developers making the
decision themselves. Over the past few years, and I believe moving
forward, this has worked very well. We all share a very strong notion of
what 1.0 is all about, and have been able to focus on that goal. ("make
SVN's feature set on par with CVS, and grab low hanging fruit to make it
better") I think there are very different ideas on how to approach the
end game, though. We know that 1.0 is "almost there" but don't quite agree
on how to get that last 1% :-)

I intended no slight towards you or Julian. I'm concerned about the
pattern rather than the specifics.
