DD implies an account on ~20 machines.  Having only upload rights
does not imply this and the outcome of a fuckup in a .deb will

Regarding some sort of staging area, it may be worth to consider
introducing upload permission to a NM who is in a certain stage of
the process, maintains >= 1 package in the archive and when such
a permission has been requested from their AM?
