Absolutely. There are two models: the "benevolent dictator" model, where one 
person decides at whim and the community reverse engineers the rules from 
that, and the "committee of judges" model, with a set of rules laid out and 
multiple people having write access to the repository work through 
contributions and make their decisions based on the public rules.

I think the latter is more suited to the Squeak Community, iff SqC decides to 
give up full control (it's quite silent from there at the moment, I hope this 
means something good's brewing :-)). At the moment, they embody a sort of 
"benevolent central committee" model...
