The owner of a package essentially has all of the acls listed on the
packagedb page.  If you want a comaintainer to have all of the powers
that you do, grant them everything that is there (including
approveacls).  If you want them to be able to do anything except approve
other people's acl requests (make new comaintainers, etc) give them
everything except approveacls.

The reason there are many packages which have everything except
approveacls is because of how the import script decided on acls for
packages.  If you were a comaintainer in owners.list, you were added to
all of the acls.  If you were listed in pkg.acl, you received commit and
watchcommit.  If you were a CCList member in owners.list, you got
watchcommit and watchbugzilla.

Owners and comaintainers are welcome to change things however they see fit.
