Authorization is granted as usual through appropriate certificates, such as
gpg keys/encrypted mails with passwd entries.
A buildd requires root/sudo access for developers (in short). Sure, not
every maintainer who want to build a package with sbuild need that access to
outworld of chroot, but this shows why there is no buildd package in the
archive. Running a buildd is *not* trivial! ;-)
