As someone processing alioth-related requests, I would find it nice to
use collab-maint for such projects; but I'm willing to hear about
arguments against that.

As a random developer, I would really hate to see people fight through
commits. In case that would happen, I think that can be fixed, IIRC
collab-maint has some abuse clauses or something similar.

(IOW: I'm not convinced you need a dedicated group; quite the contrary.)
