To report on the processes of another project; GCC organizes people in
"blanket write priviledge", "maintainers" (CPU port, OS, misc), and
"write after approval". The blanket priviledge allows people to commit
contributions they have reviewed from contributors without any write
access; those are used sparingly. Maintainers can change "their" files
any time they like, except after a freeze. Everybody else must wait
for a patch review.
