No serious open-source project NEEDS to allow *WRITE* access to the

However, READ access to the *REAL* repository should be unrestricted.
If its not, or if you "vet" the repository before offering it to the public,
then its not open-source, no matter what you call it.

even involved.

When they're that visible from this distance, they must loom large when you
get closer.
