Collaboration between more than 1 or 2 people on a patch set to propose
upstream.

That said, depending on the scm, fairly easy to clone an upstream, make
initial changes, rsync to fedorapeople.  Other people can clone from
that, owner can merge in changes from them, etc...  The only real thing
missing is managing multiple people having write access.  Is that
really a huge deal if each of these spinoffs have a commit master that
pulls from people's changes and merges them into the repo?
