I thought those guidelines were meant for DDs who now have commit access
but aren't member of the team. Anyway there wasn't an option (other than
C) which didn't say that the team should be notified. You should have
proposed it. ;-)

The only restriction compared to A is that when uploading a package to
the archive for which you are not listed in Uploaders, you must use
DELAYED/5. Doesn't sound like a big problem to me.

And don't forget they're only guidelines, not rules used for punishing
people who break them. ;-)
