My idea, good idea. Limiting access to productive repositories for the
time being might be reasonable, but [staging] access is okay, almost[1]
no harm can be done there.

[1] staging packages are in pool/, so if you commit a package to staging
with the same filename as an extra package, the extra package will
disappear and have a wrong md5sum in the extra db.
