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.
