Looks like it has been a while since I pushed something into gnulib,
but with this sort of 6-month notice, I'd definitely find reason for
something ;)

Meanwhile, I'm on board with the idea of pruning the list of write
access to frequent contributors (even if I temporarily fail to meet
that standard).  It doesn't seem onerous to re-establish permissions
if my situation changes to make it easier for me to contribute more
direct patches again.
