Please grant cvs write access to the area which do NOT 
need supre review for now. will check in code to /mozilla/extensions/ctl/ which are 
not build by default.
He should NOT check in code into other area for now. 

We may ask suprereview to grant him higher access later.

What does the name "ctl" (full of Unix resonance) mean?  I don't recall staff @ being consulted on this subdirectory, but maybe I missed the mail.
Just curious, wondering what it means (not sure there's a better name, but it
certainly is terse!).

ctl stands for "complex text layout" (agreed it is cryptic). The ctl module 
in mozilla is for providing thai script support. It can also be used in  
future for indian language support. The extensions/ctl directory was approved
for checkin sometime in June. Included below, a mail for your reference:

Hi all

OK, staff is fine with having the applicable Pango files in 
Mozilla, noting that any changes made to these files should ideally be 
sent to the main Pango project, and that there's a change the main 
project won't want some changes, resulting is a slight divergence.  We'd 
prefer not to see this happen, of course.  But since Owen is comfortable 
with this chance, we'll go ahead. staff can't make promises about getting the changes back to 
Pango, but we'll certainly try.  Blizzard says he can probably do this 
pretty easily, and we'll try to find another way if Blizzard can't for 
some reason. 

So there's the OK from mozilla.staff.

Thanks to all for taking the time to explain this to me and get these 
things settled.

Is this access still needed? This bug dates back to October.

It would certainly be useful to have, access considering that i am now taking
ownership of the ctl component (intl/ctl) of which i am the developer. There's
only so many times, roland mainz and simon montagu can
check in code for me. (They've never complained, though).

Pl look at which is a request
to add ctl under BugZilla's Browser-Component list.
