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
the master branch to only allow everyone in the "Maintainer" group to
merge. This will prevent everyone who is not listed in the .doap file
from merging.

But, that in turn isn't really compatible with the idea that the Relase
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.

FWIW, mutter and gnome-shell (and others too I suspect)  only allow
maintainers to merge to master (due to a lack of better granularity in
the community edition of GitLab), but that is primarily due to us using
marge-bot, so while anynone from the release team that isn't listed in
the doap file as a maintainer won't be able to merge, they would be able
to assign their build fix merge requets to marge-bot to have merged.
