If the issue in question is a typo?

When the effort involved in gaining access to the repo, or in informing
someone with access about the bug, is greater than the effort it takes to
actually fix the problem, I agree that tends to be a deterrent for me.
(This is true in general, not just in the case of the website.)  I don't
know if that's sufficient reason to change the perms on the repo; certainly,
most of my complaints about the website are in the area of site
organization, not minor content bugs.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
