Absolutely. I think, this can not (easily) be automated.

I would prefer to have a manual selection of packagers
getting access, something like proven packagers.
(I know, this leads to bureaucracy and should be avoided)

Accidental mistakes can happen, at least proven packagers
know, how to revert this.

Make them more prominent, i.e. making it easier to contact
