Oh, I'm not claiming we do some irrevocable revocation of their commit
privileges. The fact is that they just don't currently *have* commit
access. They couldn't even commit if they wanted to, due to the lack
of an account at the ASF.

I don't think we have to forget these folks (who have obviously given
valuable contributions in the past), just that it makes little sense
to call them committers, since they can't commit.

We could cross this list with a similar one I sent to private@ a few
months ago when trying to contact the various translators.
