In some situations I'm talking about there was a slight advantage that
upon ingress you could verify that prospective committers were aware of
basic procedure.

But this is indeed only a minor advantage and a case for gid 800 (or
equivalent solutions) could certainly be made for anything that's easily
reversible; and we can expect DD's not to go on a commit rampage that
takes a lot of time to revert.

The collab-maint repository has been available to all DD's for a long
while. We've been trying to get the secure-testing repository writable for
all DD's, unfortunately the Alioth admins didn't have time to respond to
that request yet, but the wish is certainly there.
