maintainer of the openSUSE:Factory:Contrib project and
respectively (as far as I know) all of his packages/submissions should
be reviewed. But as long as saigkill is added as maintainer for his
package, he can do everything with it directly in
openSUSE:Factory:Contrib once it is accepted.
Is this really intended?
Yes, this is current approach - changes of packages in Contrib are done by
maintainers of those packages without explicit review. It's the same behavior
as everyone project in openSUSE BuildService has.
This was discussed several times (for example I prefer reviews for Contrib),
but this is a current consensus.
The problem is that a package maintainer can also add new binary packages
to his source files, like say "gcc" or whatever.
So any packager, even with just write permissions to 1 package, can subvert
the whole Contrib build.
