FSVO "around" - I've been lurking for the past several years, and
reading the lists only sporadically; I haven't really been involved much
(if at all) in longer than that.

I think I had commit access at one point (before a migration), but I
can't remember if I ever used it.

I wouldn't be against having it, but given how relatively inactive I am,
I don't know if it's worth the bother of getting it set up. If there's
little to no bother, however, then - sure, why not?

(Although I don't know what commit rules there may be around here
nowadays; I know once upon a time there were "post it for review first"
requirements, but I'm far enough behind on -dev-eng that I don't know
whether any such thing still exists in practice or what form it takes if
