I don't understand how removing your write access to the repository
prevents you from continuing to do the work.

Surely if they fail to do so, it should be dropped.  But saying "they
will be helpless without me, so they will fail, so drop them now"
doesn't make much sense.  If you no longer wish to help with debian
ppc, that's sad, but I don't understand why that means that nobody
else could ever be found.
