Hmm, aren't maintainers normally reading over cvs-commits-list and checking
whether there's something wrong.

Btw. as one of cvsmaster gnome org, may I ask the board to talk/decide about
a new policy for creating CVS accounts ? Currently the "policy" is something
between "ask Miguel" and "ask the maintainer". Miguel seems to be forwarding
all such requests to me without any check whatsoever while Elliot and me are
doing some more checks (module maintainer / translation coordinator must
approve etc.). So it is very unclear how to get a new CVS account and it also
depends on who you ask.

It'd be good if the board can make a more formal policy for this.
