At most there is "common practice" and of that there is several: Alioth 
is provided by Debian and has the requirement that its use should be 
related to Debian, but apart from that we decide on our own how we want 
to work internally in our team.

I like to avoid taking or giving orders from others, and since we use 
Alioth only as central "hub" for distributed resources (git and 
mailinglists) I see no need for hierarchy and routinely appoint "super 
cow powers" to any newcomer to our team.

If others insist that we should have hierarchy and distrust newcomers 
until they somehow prove themselves worthy of higher power, then I will 
demote myself to the lowest power (and consider leaving the group).

Speaking of which:

I have till now mostly used collab-maint instead of our own git area to 
ease contributions from other Debian members.  Alioth now (since some 
time) allows any team to grant write access to all official Debian 
members, similar to the access rights of collab-maint.  Do anyone in 
this team disagree with enabling that additional right to our git, or is 
it ok that I enable it (and start move packages from collab-maint to our 
own git)?
