I applaud the increasing tendency of Debian maintainers signing up for the 
low-threshold NMU list.  But I think the group already serves as an insti- 
tution to distribute the responsibility among many persons.  I'd support 
signing up the entire group, too, as long as any NMUers commit their NMUs 
to the group's Subversion repository.

If that's impossible without being a member of the group, then I am against 
it.  The group should not have to continually track, and reproduce in the 
repo, NMUs, which are bound to happen relatively frequently given the 
large number of packages maintained by the group.
