Ouch... If that's true, that's a really big regression! Bodhi has allowed
comaintainers and even members of packager to submit updates for quite a
while now, and this has been seen as a good thing.

An "owner-only" policy is going to severely impede pushing KDE updates, as
we need to submit updates for a big group of packages with different
nominal primary maintainers (but all effectively team-maintained by us).
And they need to be pushed as a group because all the new KDE packages
depend on the new kdelibs (it's backwards- but not forwards-compatible).

Other updates which need to be pushed as grouped updates are also similarly
affected (e.g. xulrunner and dependent packages).

I think it is absolutely essential for at least people with explicit commit
access to be able to push updates.
