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.
