I don't think it should be tied to "who is in charge" either. But I'm
strongly opposed to an applicant believing that if their application is
successful then they are being given decision making power for a
particular package. This is one reason I gave a -1 recently. The key is
in _understanding how decisions in Ubuntu are made_. If there's a
misunderstanding here, it's going to result in grief, regardless of "how
capable and trustful this applicant is".
