Brad is working full time on feedparser and you're essentially telling 
him he can't get CVS access until its 1.0. How are we supposed to GET it 
to 1.0 it he can't get CVS access?

Do you see the problem here?

I think the issue is that right now for the jakarta sandbox if you give 
Brad access then you're giving him access to a number of other projects. 
He doesn't want access to other projects he just wants access to FeedParser.
