It might be the primary one, but if e.g. machines adiministrated by
Ingo have been given access to wanna-build by James Troup, I'd take
that as a explicit enough trust relationship, too. - If I trust James
enough to hand out Debian accounts, I'll also trust him enough to be
as picky whom he hands buildd-admin passports, too.
