Congratulations on your new role Andrew!

There's still a question around committer rights to the Project's master forest[0]. You can decide how best to manage the Project repositories. When you took over the Lead role in the JDK 7 Updates Project, I believe all Project committers/reviewers received commit rights to the master forest. You can email the OpenJDK ops team regarding any adjustments to be made on that front.
