Just because a committer gets an idle timeout message doesn't mean that
the commit bit gets revoked. This does not happen. I know because I got
this message recently. So there's really no reason for a committer to do
a "panic" commit to save his commit bit. He won't lose it. He'll just get
annoying reminders that he hasn't committed in a while.

I chose to give my src bit up since I didn't see any likelihood that I
would be active in the future, although I still have my port bit.

So kindly stop casting aspersions on hsu at .
