That's pretty much how it works, yes. By being given commit access, a
developer is being acknowledged by the existing set of active developers as
having the smarts to make decisions about what does and doesn't get included
in the project.

We *ask* that large commits are discussed beforehand in IRC, but it doesn't
always happen.

Fundamentally, being given commit access means that you as an individual can
say what gets into Rockbox. We don't have some cloud-based gestalt commit
mechanism. I don't know of many projects which do.
