If we consider one project for ocaml packages.

The pro:
- easier comaintainership because we only need one permission
  on the whole project
- no need to create a new project when packaging a new app 

The cons:
- everyone can touch everyone package (?) so we have to trust
each other
- we cannot allow someone to commit in only one package (for
example, to not-yet-maintainers who want to participate)

Any more idea?
