I already wrote it a few times, but since Matthias is interested I'll 
repeat it: a number of PMC members (including me) have moderator access, 
which is not the same thing as admin access.

Moderators can delete spam comments and publish extensions. I routinely 
check the site for unpublished extensions and I think I published a 
couple last week, possibly including the dictionary. If it wasn't me, 
possibly some other moderator did that.

The extension maintainer can't publish an extension, unless he is a site 
moderator too.

What you are interested in (in light of the above explanation) is 
probably moderator access. You will need to create an account on the 
site (or sites, if this applies to both Extensions and Templates; but I 
would start with Extensions) for it. I, as a moderator, can probably 
create new moderators, so after your account is created you can try 
e-mailing me to get moderator access.

Admin access is reserved to system administration tasks; there is one 
administrator account only, and it makes sense that SourceForge 
continues to have credentials for it, since system upgrades often need 
some actions to be performed using the administrator account.
