Hah. Thanks!

Is there a "committers guide" anywhere? By default I would assume that
the rules are pretty much -- continue sending pull requests for my own
changes (unless a trivial typo fix in a comment or something), go
ahead and merge anyone else's pull request where things seem okay and
my best judgement is we have consensus, fix things if my judgement was
wrong? But I don't want to step on any toes...
