Paul answered last week so I guess Bborie now have commit access. Did you give it a try Bborie?

I read the guidelines and agree with them. This document is very well written and I'm glad such a document exist (even if it does since only 3 weeks!).

I have some questions/comments though:

-It would be nice to have the "SVN Commit Practice numbered" (so we can refer to them) and listed in order of importance (and/or maybe grouped into sections like "To do when Commiting", "Branches", "Restriction on Commits", "Broken Build").
-Only PSC people, on the agreement of other PSC people, should be allowed to modify this document.
-The sentence "Once a new feature ticket is completed, it should have in keywords section of ticket with history. " is not clear for me. What does that mean?

-There has been a large number of tickets fixed for PostGIS raster. Should we add them all in the NEWS document? In any other document? Can we just write a little text describing PostGIS raster and list the contributors?
