This basically boils down to give much more interested people write
access to the git repository under the premise that noone should apply
non-trivial changes to the trunk but create branches instead which can
then be merged after review and approval.  People who don't follow the
rules will lose write access.

I don't object to it; I'm even in favour of such a solution.  It's
trivial to make remote git branches appear in a local repository
clone, and you don't have to fiddle around with applying the patches
during review since you can easily switch forth and back between the
