You are right and that is the real question. It would be extending the 
scope because JDBC isn't really related to any of the feature areas 
currently listed on the group page.

Yes, I believe he has push-rights so this isn't an issue.  I'm sorta the 
messenger here, not the campaign manager :-)  so I'll have to defer to 
Lance on this.
