/me likes github way of doing in this regard. :-p

Anyway, here, let's keep this for after the release; my suggestion would be:
 - to leave it open to everyone (easier to provide patch, although it
would be good to have a review path before commits);
 - keep the production push button to the web team webmasters (so it's
their duty to maintain the tree for production, check commits are ok
and fix/revert when needed);
 - depending on the situation, have the possibility to block abusers.
