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.
