This is actually a topic that has come up a few times.  A good number
of previously core packages still have default locked down ACLs.  This
was somewhat mandated by the general populace of core maintainers.
However I think that the trial period is over and I hope that the
Fedora maintainers at large have proved to be responsible about what
they do, so that all maintainers should feel confident in opened
packages.

I still want there to be an ACL system for when a maintainer strongly
feels that his/her package should be kept to a small commit list.
However the vast majority would be just fine open, and would promote
more of a help you neighbor attitude if ACLs weren't in the way.

So I'd like to discuss the idea of having an automated "opening" of all
ACLs that a maintainer can opt /out/ of should they choose.  Some
methodology of tagging each package that should be opened and allowing
some time for a maintainer to "untag" the package as it were to opt out
of opening it.

I'm bouncing this back over to fedora-devel-list as that's where
something like this should be brought up.

Thoughts?
