There's both sides:
- Once you have access and can release a new version, your mental
excuse / barrier for not doing so gets lower.
- By having too many, you don't care about any of them anymore.
But I think we are still sufficiently few people working on the ZTK,
so we can grant all of them access to all ZTK packages.
I don't want to give anyone access to all the packages I have. That's
Zope + Plone + personal combined and by now about 350 packages. Makes
a total mess out of the PyPi UI. But giving people who work on
refactoring the ZTK access to the ZTK packages should be fine.
