You have to send a patch for all NMUs in any case. A simple "NMU at
will" tag should be sufficient. However, a distribution-wide (or
priority-based for base/standard/optional/extra) policy would be
simpler to understand and make use of.
The fact of being group-maintained /should/ make it simpler for
third-party changes to get into a package anyway (since there are more
maintainers to review and commit changes). This should lessen the
need for 0-day NMUs.
