Well, if they are around and willing to do, yes, absolutely. The main 
reason for putting the responsibility with the liaison is that at the 
point where a project goes south the contributors might no longer be 
available (temporarily or permanently). Plus, there can be situations 
where you may want to keep certain things and not others - if that 
happens I want the responsibility to lie with the liaison to decide what 
stays and what must go. Finally, I want it to be clear for the liaison 
that there can be real work involved if they decide to take on a project.
