None of this is documented, really. Discussion occurs on emacs-devel,
and Stallman gets the final word.

See Emacs' Savannah page [1] to see a list of the project admins, as
well as the other members who have commit privileges.

Then read the emacs-devel archives [2]. If you read enough, you'll
find that the answers to your questions will emerge. You can use the
names gleaned from [1] to see whose messages carry more weight.
