You are in the gcc group on gcc.gnu.org aka sourceware.org. That only
gives you write access to gcc, not the binutils. I don't know if you
ever had binutils write access in the past. What you should do know is
get a binutils maintainer to sponsor you and send a note to
firstname.lastname@example.org requesting binutils write access.
