If we do keep going toward the goal of having more automation support
for testing and gating builds from koji based on results from that
automation, I don't understand how it makes sense to let more people
have write access to the checks/tests used to determine whether a build
is acceptable or not.

I agree with Zbyszek that PRs which can contain packaging fixes with
tests is the best way to handle new contributions. Keeping the ACLs and
PRs separate for the two things seems like a lot of unnecessary
extra work to me.
