I am not sure what requirements you are talking about.  Do you have some
reference that explains this?  Christian, do you have one?  I would
guess we are probably not the only project affected by this.

It sounds like you're suggesting that we should have a core team of
developers in official capacity for GNUnet e.V. to look at pull requests
and then say "we think that this doesn't infringe on copyright" and
merge them in.  Is that what you're saying?

If somebody hosts code on the GNUnet gitlab that infringes copyright,
wouldn't we also be responsible for this?  How does the pull request
policy solve that?

I thought we were having an interesting discussion here.  You're right,
nobody is forcing you to commit to master regularly.  That's fine,
everybody should use a workflow they're comfortable with.
