Thanks for your help, Ganneff, and Dom&Niko for your approval.

There's one detail left where I'm not sure how to handle this
structure- and permissions-wise. Quoting from my first mail in this

      currently we have
      + meta.git
      + website.git
      + scripts.git
      + packages/
      + attic/
      + do we want to keep this structure? probably yes;

So besides a subgroup ("packages" →) "modules" and the new
"interpreter" subgroup we currently also have some more repos and a
directory ("attic"). And we probably want a system where permissions
are separate for "interpreter" on the one hand and everything else on
the other hand.

If we more or less keep the structure as above we could add
members/permissions for "perl-team" but then would have to lower
permissions for interpreter explicitly; or we'd have to add members
for "modules" and "attic" and whatnot separately. Sounds a bit
complicated and error-prone.

Or maybe we throw everything under "modules" except "interpreter":

group perl-team
    subgroup interpreter
        project perl.git
    subgroup modules
        subgroup packages
            project libfoo-perl.git
            project libbar-perl.git
        subgroup attic
            project libbaz.git

Maybe a bit complicated with many levels but then we can set
permissions as in Ganneff's mail, and after all it's just about paths
which are consumed by scripts ...

I guess I'll set up perl-team later and play around a bit. And maybe
someone has thoughts or ideas before or after that.
