The user rights are one thing of concern: games will now have approx 30
- 40 comiters I think, number is probably growing. One issue I can see
there is the way people are approved to write in a project. I remember
myself: basically asking on the ML and a few minutes later the rights
are granted. This is very good for the growth of the system, but how can
we guarantee a certain level of trust for the user like this? The
suggested trust model so far is nice, but as long as all those
information is only on the web and not in any package manager, they are
most likely never to be seen. But that's another discussion...

Don't give every user the right to manage the whole repository, but give the users only rights in their own packages. This reduces the number of people a lot.

For new packages, one of the maintainers of the repository must be asked to create it, but that happens not so often compared to the daily work.
