Not quite. Everyone listed in the .doap file is a "Maintainer", while
everyone else is a "Developer". So you can just change the protection o

from merging.

Team is the one who should always be able to handle emergencies in case
a maintainer is not available at the time. So, they kind of need to
have the Maintainer permissions in order to always be able to step in,
even if projects have configured branch protections.
