Not a good idea for the core release. For everyone who had problems with
the way Squeak Central behaved ( I read something like 'dictatorship' on this
list ), this will be an even worse repetition of the past. Imagine that there
is someone on the 'approval-trigger' who has a 'special' opinion of how things
have to go, or who is more and more considered by the community of being not
able to make the right decisions.

How to change it and even how to say it?
IMHO this is not 'community'. I would like to add that mails regarding this
should be sent to the main list and not privately.
