Not exactly, Andreas. You have asked me to ask everybody to give up their 
perms and transfer those to APML. I've sent you the draft of that email 
and you've approved it, which was then sent to all concerned. Everybody 
but GOZER has acted on that email, that's why only GOZER is the only

Two menus: one owned by APML and yet another where AMPL is a registered 
module owner. Which already sucks, as there is no unified single access 
point. So many times people change one but not the other.

That's absolutely not what we want Andreas. We need *not* to have 
everybody explicit co-maintainer. We need to add people to the APML group 
and have everything happen automatically. Manually giving each new 
developer co-maint ownership contradicts the idea of the group ownership 
we were discussing before.

Sure, let's polish the bugs.
