I agree we don't need a lot of rules. I think I essentially was thinking
about what you call "establishing conventions for distributed
maintainership". Actually.

Other "rules" like in fact much what Roel mentioned could be up to the
maintainership in fact. At least to start with. Eventually, especially
when we have better tools like the Harvesting tool, we may perhaps try o
streamline but until then I agree - let the maintainership work as they
see fit for the packages they tend.

Of course, at the same time, it does feel reassuring to hear how SCG
intend to work.
