A general concern is "who has access to the repository"? Can anyone take the
template and submit an RFC that we'd need to consider on the mailing list after
a subsequent discussion? I can see it clear as sky the day Gitlab opens and
someone figures they'll submit an RFC to move away from systemd to
sysvinit/openrc/runit clear as day.

Do we only allow pull-requests from staff with comments from users, or do we
allow anyone to send pull-requests? I'm not sure about the correct approach here
and curious if the concern is still premature at this stage.
