In your vision of things, who would be responsible for granting
these privileges and judging whether someone can be trusted to have

I think our current model of giving all DDs access to the whole
archive if they successfully complete NM works. We have procedures
to deal with abuse, and we have tools to review the work of others
(like the PTS, lintian.d.o, etc). Why move to a culture of having to
ask permission? In my opinion, it's very valuable that any DD can
decide out of the blue to go on a RC bug fixing spree if they happen
to have the time, as some have done in the past.
