[VOTE] Maintain a single committer list for the Hadoop project
Per this thread [1] should we have a single set of committers for the
entire Hadoop project, ie all subprojects?

If the vote passes, current and future committers will gain commit
rights in all current (Common, HDFS, MapReduce, YARN) and future
Hadoop subprojects. The specific change to the bylaws follows:

This vote will run for 7 days. Since the vote represents a
modification of the bylawys [2] it requires a lazy majority of active
PMC members.
