When we moved the Subversion book into its own repository, we 
"grandfathered in" Subversion full and doc committers into the svnbook 
committers list.  However, that was a one-time thing.  IMO, commit 
access to the English book sources and website should be granted to new 
folks on the merits of work done for the book only (with the whole patch 
submission bit going on). 

Commit access to the various language translations is managed by those 
translation teams, and I've no idea what policies exist there.  
Basically, if one of the translation coordinators says, "Mike, please 
give translation access to Joe Translator", I oblige.
