AIUI (please, correct me if I am wrong) the D-I repository is hosted on
svn.d.o, a machine belonging to the debian project. I don't see why the
DPL would have authority over the mailing lists (hosted on a debian
machine and maintained by the list admins) but not the svn repo (hosted
on a debian machine, maintained by the svn admins (alioth team?) and
access for that particular repo controlled by the project admins).

Not to say that I disagree that the team should be able to choose their
own members. I think the best result would be for the entire D-I team to
vote on it, and base the decision on that, but I don't think that would
be accepted by all parties in the argument.
