Hi Austin, Shawn,

We're still working out the general policy for commit access for
non-Apple contributors.

I'm trying to understand the situation better -- could you explain why
pull requests present too much overhead for this project?  Many Apple
engineers who have commit access find that the pull request approach
works better for their day-to-day work.

My concern is that doing this work in a parallel organization hides
this project from other contributors who might be interested.  Also,
you would only get CI coverage in the primary Swift organization.  In
general, creating a parallel organization sends an ambiguous message
to other people working on the project.

Furthermore, even Shawn started his work on this project with a pull
request against his fork (https://github.com/shawnce/swift/pull/1).

Could we start with pull requests against the swift-3-indexing-model
branch in the primary repository, and possibly move to direct commits
