That reminds me of an old idea discussed with Roland, Raphael, and Sam
(Hocevar) years ago: provide a web-based admin checkbox that will enable
DD-wide access on all repositories associated to a given alioth project.

The rationale was that of easing the control of DD-wide commit access
right by project admins, which is already possible (and used by various
teams), but requires bothering Alioth admins, AFAIR.

I never come up with the energy of writing the needed [1] *forge plugin,
mainly because I've never even looked at *forge code. I re-throw the
idea in the bucket here, as someone interested in more liberal commit
access rights might want to pursue that too.
