OK.  I'll concede on this point.  It doesn't change the
work flow and does not prevent developers without ssh
access to from interacting in the process.

So to summarize the current work flow model:

* We have -unstable which anyone with ssh access to can push to for build farm testing
  (run several times per day).
* We have -test which is under the control of the RM
  to pull changes from other developer -test trees.
  Buildfarm will run once per day.
* We have -stable which is under control of the RM to
  pull changes from the official -test tree.  Buildfarm
  runs once per week.

cheers, jerry
