Yes, though not strictly enforced. The two-spaces rule helps those of
us who use sentence-motion commands in our editors.

Well, if someone with commit access to area A approves you to make a
commit in area A, then you can make that commit in area A :-). Just
mention the name of the committer who approved it, in your log message.

The long-term goal is that partial committers can gradually expand
their areas. For example, if you post 3 patches that fix typos or
other problems in documentation, and they all get approved for commit,
then eventually someone will propose (privately, among the other full
committers) that your commit rights be expanded to include all
documentation. No one will disagree, and so your access will be
expanded.

Thus, we're "carefully loose" about the restrictions.
