Sorry about the direct email -- clicked the wrong button for replying to the

It's probably not any better, more like an alternate feature that would be
handy in certain environments.  Personally, I'd rather the repository be
owned and operated by just one user, and allow the repository administrator
to be able to grant and revoke permissions and add new projects and project
groups without having to add any users/groups to the system.
