Good point.  Can't help ya on that one.  But there are plenty of people 
who aren't committers who can send emails to the infrastructure@ list to 
ask questions, report problems, and sometimes even get responses back 
from the list.

Dunno if we'd agree that that kind of behavior would be covered under 
the definition of the word "work", but it's far too late to day for me 
to discuss that intelligently.

I'm sure infra and many other projects will welcome your patches to 
their websites to clarify details like this.
