I've noticed that Pawel is not listed as a committer on
eclipse.platform.debug. This will be fixed as we continue the
alignment process (so that our database matches the group
assignments indicated in the bug).
I have turned eclipse.platform.debug and eclipse.jdt.debug into
proper projects in the database. At some point, the two new project
leads should go to the portal and make sure that the "inherit" bit

all third-level projects will use the "inherit" flag to avoid
having to maintain separate metadata from their parent project.

none of the listed projects have any actual meaning with
commit rights after the group cleanup.
