We don't actually have a public list of who is a committer.

Technically we don't need to have one to implement this policy, but it seems
a bit strange to do it without.

(Technically there isn't a private list either, but anyone who is a committer
by definition can log into the repository machine, and see who is a member
of the relevant Unix group)
