All alpine developers now have unrestricted push access to aports 3 months ago

From Ariadne Conill to ~sircmpwn/alpine-devel

Hello,

I am pleased to announce that pursuant to Technical Steering Committee 
ticket 47 that we have decided to remove the main-vs-community ACL 
restrictions on the aports repository, meaning anyone who is presently an 
Alpine developer (e.g. with commit privileges) may now commit to the main 
repository in aports.

We will also be scheduling some additional TSC work items to improve the 
onboarding process for developers as well as formally specifying the 
requirements for vetting new developers.

As a general reminder: Alpine developers as a consequence of their work 
have effective root access to every Alpine install, so please be mindful
