I'm confused. The article said that Ted's trees had not been pulled yet. In fact, that happened today; a bunch of ext4 work went into the mainline, including a number of patches which increase robustness for applications which don't use fsync(). I dunno what you were trying to link to, but it didn't work. I've not seen anything about revocation of commit rights. (It's hard to "revoke commit rights" in a distributed system in any case; at worst you can refuse to pull from somebody else's repository.)
Maybe it's an April 1 post that went over my head?
