Is it possible to give developers privileges on SF *without* granting 
CVS access to those that don't want it? Then (e.g. Lars) could be added 
to the list of people that bugs could be assigned to, without any (even 
imagined) pressure to commit changes directly to the source tree.

This could also be useful for having a few more people who can handle 
tracker items on SF (e.g. by assigning bugs to those likely to be 
knowledgeable about them), without having to give them all CVS access. 
I'd be interested in having more ability to help handle bugs, but I see 
no reason at all to give me write access to CVS.

However, I don't know enough about Source Forge to know if either idea 
is possible.
