In the specific Avalon situation I beg to differ.

If we all had commit access to the descriptors, I'm almost certain the
avalon project wouldn't fail any longer.  There are other failures in
avalon due to properties not being set correctly or wrong paths.

If Leo can't find help inside the Avalon team we may be better of with
moving the descriptors under Gump control.  In Gump's module the
Avalon committers can still manage them, there are just more hands
available to fix them, not less.

If the nags are annoying, committers for the project can simply turn
them off.  Same for deferred nags.  After all all committers are able
to remove the nag elements.

This doesn't apply to externally hosted projects, see mockobjects.  In
this case we should disable nagging completely - on request.

I'm not sure I follow you here.
