(Thanks. We have long history of just `jumping in` so need to worry

Well, with Hg, everyone in WebApps was automagically given full rights 
to $TOP/webapps/* without having an extra request step.

It would be nice if GH could be similarly configured, but if that is

add this extra step to <http://www.w3.org/wiki/Webapps/Testing>?
