    Yes, I agree, this is somewhat along the lines what I mentioned -- a
    main maintainer (Linus in this case) has their own CVS tree that they
    can have specific people work on. This example would be for the entire
    kernel, and as you say trust would be required. The number of people in
    this specific case would be countable on one hand (or perhaps two
    fingers), whereas instances of tree sharing within sub-parts of the
    kernel could be wider and looser.

    My only negative reaction would be a single kernel tree shared among
    many/all developers, like more than two.
