As long as the rules in Felix's post are followed (e.g. for meaningful
patches, with accounts that have some rep) I think that's a good idea. We
should communicate the C4 principles, primarily so that people don't just
commit directly to the repo, but other than that I have no problem. It
would be good to occasionally clean out the list of maintainers as well
though, so we don't end up in a situation where it looks like we have X
maintainers, but actually there are very few who are actually involved.
