I suspect this is going to work a whole lot better if I have commit
access to anaconda, kudzu, rhpl, booty, etc.

At the moment, the round-trip time between me generating a patch to
something like kudzu and seeing it in a testable rawhide build is
somewhat suboptimal.

I don't mean to complain -- I know people are busy and have better
things to do than commit my patches and kick off builds so that I can
get on with testing rawhide. But people are going to be busy in the
run-up to te releases too, when I most want my fixes to be getting into
builds promptly.

So it's probably best if I can be a little more self-sufficient in that
respect, by having commit access to both upstream and package
repositories and being able to do builds (at least for rawhide). Please.

Actually, we've spoken often of "arch teams" having commit access to
_all_ packages. Is that feasible?
