Revoke Ed and Chris's Commit Rights! NOW!

I would like to request that the commit right's of Ed Merks and Chris Aniszczyk be revoked immediately. At the past two EclipseCon's these two managed to each win both the Top Ambassador and Top Committer awards, two of the three voted on Eclipse individual awards.

If either of them hopes to win all three awards, the Triple Crown of Eclipse Awards so-to-speak, or the Eclipse Awards Grand Slam if you prefer, one of them will have to win Top Contributor next year! This will be tough as both of them are such avid committers. It may be easier for them to battle for this final award if they both have to submit patches for each change they wish to make.

Of course, if we strip of them of their commit rights the evolution of PDE and EMF may slow, but really, who uses these technologies anyways? :-)

In all seriousness, congratulations Ed and Chris, and to Remy Suen (Winner of this years top contributor awards) and Eric Rizzo (Winner of top Newcomer Evangelist).
