Koji also has a notion of the "owner" of a package.  It treats owners
specially in at least two ways:

1. The owner of a package is sent e-mails for all actions in the
buildsystem regarding packages they own, regardless of who initiated

2. Only the owner of a package is permitted to tag or untag all builds
for that package.  Co-maintainers may only tag or untag builds they

#1 can hopefully be fixed by the famed fedmsg->e-mail gateway, so it
can probably be safely ignored.

#2, not so much.  You rarely need to manually mess around with koji
tags, but when you do need it, you *really* need it.  ;-)

Do you all plan to fix koji to permit all comaintainers to perform tag
operations on a package as part of enabling SIG maintainership?  If
not, the "point of contact" terminology wouldn't be very accurate.
