I wouldn't use quite the same words as Léo, but from my perspective,
controlling access to particular branches (master, staging,
core-updates, ...) on Savannah is a good thing, as it reduces risk. I
don't think that's relevant for all branches though, it would be better
if more people could collaborate through wip-* branches (if that's
useful to them).

As Savannah doesn't allow for access control per branch (or even per
project repository), currently to give someone access to anything, you
have to give them access to everything. Maybe that's possible to
improve, but using some other Git repository hosted elsewhere is one
