who actually rely on those subscriptions would need to subscribe
themselves first; this rather awkward situation is why I never sorted it
out years ago ...)

Note that it's also possible to grant ~ubuntu-core-dev push access to
that repository without adding them to ~ubuntu-installer; anyone in
~ubuntu-installer can configure this on
