Please do propose the changes!

This is not really how we work. It would be better if you first
summarized the changes you'd like so we could discuss and better
understand the path you are taking. If it looks good, we'd most
certainly be happy to incorporate any patches you send.

And if you keep up the current level of activity, I don't think it
will take too long for us to grant you committer status. But please
note that committership in an Apache project is not just about write
access to the code, it's also about the ability to communicate and
work together.
