Something related to this: I'd like to open my packages by default for
sponsors and a (not-yet-existent group) long-term-contributors(¹). Could
FESCo consider making something like this possible?

Reasons for that wish: I have no problem with other people modifying my
packages (²), but I think the risk of opening lots of packages in CVS
for alls cvs_extras members is to high, as it's not that hard for a
malicious attacker to get sponsored (site note: especially as the "hit
CTRL + C at the right moment and non or and incomplete commit message
gets send" problems is still not solved and thus it's not that hard to
modify something in CVS without being noticed early enough).


(¹) -- long-term in this case maybe defined as something like this:
people that have at least ten packages or have three packages and are
around for at least one year

(²) -- as I said in the past now and then already: I still like us to
see a more wiki-like approach where modifying other peoples packages is
not frowned upon as it is currently
