To continue using the CD team as an example:

1) We have people from all over participating - d-i people, d-cd
people, users, developers

2) Anyone can suggest changes/patches

3) CVS commit access is open to all DDs

If more people want to come and help get CDs and DVDs done, please
dive in. Some of the effort is centralised so far (like creating the
official images), but we'd love to share that out when possible. And
of course there's always more work in testing... :-)
