Well, the question for me is, who is the maintainer?  Or are you saying 
there isn't one?  Does the same person maintain the OrderedCollection 
code that maintains the OrderedCollection tests?  ClassBuilder and the 
ClassBuilder tests?  If so, then ok, put the tests in the image (until 
we have it together enough to maintain even the core elements as 
discrete packages), but give the designated maintainer full commit 
privileges - no approval needed for them to get changes into the 
stream.  At least that way we don't get bogged down so much in the 

My sense is that right now there is a clear group of people that are 
maintaining these tests, separately from whoever maintains the core of 
the image (ie, everybody and nobody), and could most easily keep 
maintaining them if they were a separate package independent of the 
image.  But I could be mistaken about that in this instance, and maybe 
that's what you're telling me.
