I'm all for "colaborative maintainership,"(I'd call it wiki-style
maintenance effort), but I don't think that means we need to remove all
things that protect the security of the bits we provide.

Opening CVS more sounds to me like having a club house with all the
valuable things that were created over the past years in it and all
inner doors unlocked where every just approved club member gets a key to
the entrance. Would you do that in a club with over 500 members where
it's not that hard to become a club member?

See f13's post, it's not about sponsors, they are just a example and a
group of contributers we trust. I agree with f13 that the group needs to
be bigger then just sponsors (albeit I afaics want it a bit smaller then
what f13 thinks about)

Sounds good -- maybe that could be added to NewMaintainerContainment, as
the changes that are needed for that are likely similar?
