It is somehow odd to have a complex trust system with many levels
of control (roughly packager -> provenpackager -> sponsor) for 
contributors that have less power, while there is no apparent 
control/procedure for the cvsadmin group. At least people having
cvsadmin powers granted should be provenpackagers, and maybe 
cvsadmin members could be identified and something about them 
could be added in the policies pages, be it only a mention to an 
informal process to become cvsadmin.
