If we are about to stick to subversion, then only maintainer could
submit certain package. Of course, if package don't have maintainer,
then anybody could submit it.

If we will turn to git, then everybody could have his own clone, but
the merge request should be reviewed by maintainer. After merging,
anybody could submit it. The problem is that, we couldn't assure every
package have a valid maintainer.
