Sure, but what is rule ? How much downloads per time is needed to qualify ?

Run statistics over the downloads and choose accordingly. Very likely you will have some ranges then, which can be used to cluster the data into
- seldom used
- used frequently
- often used

This statistics should help to decide your above question, especially if you compare them with downloads of the distribution (thought only the relative values, not the absolute ones).

Yes, I agree 100% here. But shouldn't it be possible also that non-Novell
employees can become part of distribution maintainers ?
I fear that otherwise plenty of packages just get refused due to limited
Of course we need a definition, when someone is trustable enough for Factory

Hmm, actually I myself take part in factory for package frozen-bubble like this: I make changes to the games: package (also get frozen-bubble bug reports of BugZilla) and when I think it is useful ask the Novell member (aehm, forgot his name) to integrate into Factory.

So this boils down to 1-2 minutes work if he trusts me and lots of control if not. I'm not sure if I would like to have the rights to submit to Factory directly.

No, in factory directly only a very small group has direct write access. They
review changes from submitters. But they have their groups of trusted people
for certain packages. But their changes get anyway reviewed.

I didn't want to overcomplicate the description :-) So please assume in all my descriptions, that I'm aware of the 2 step process in Novell factory.
