If you ask people for help, you also need to give them the required access
they'll need to help you.
I'm not the infrastructure lead for RPM Fusion, Xavier is. He should
handle and coordinate that, and that's what I hoped to archive when I
started this discussion.
Or, to say it differently: Consider in Fedora that someone from rel-eng
would not really be happy with the work of the current Fedora infra
team. Assume further that this rel-eng person still has admin
permissions everywhere in FAS, as he did some infra work in the past,
but stopped a while ago.
Should this rel-eng person thus use this power and simply add people to
the infra group in FAS and without bothering to ask the infra lead? I'd
say the answer is a definite "no", as long as the infra lead is still
around and does his job good enough (IOW: as long as the benefits
outweigh the risks and disadvantages).
