IMHO there is no need to *ask* users the permission to move a package in
[community]; users already know "their" packages can be moved in
an official repo, it seems to me only a waste of time (but I agree is a
good etiquette to notify the user).

Moreover, I wonder what would you do if a user denied the permission to
move a package in an official repo...
