Completely agreed, though I'll be the devil's advocate, and mention that
it's pretty complicated for students in the SoC (where Zeitgeist
started) to get 1) git accounts 2) get bugzilla modules created.

I wish there was a more integrated solution, or even a an easier way to
create modules within a separate root from the rest of GNOME if we don't
want to trust the students blindly at the start.

Hopefully the new admin would sort that kind of problems out.
