Subject: [boost] Git permissions model

I have a couple of questions about the permission models that we use for git.
- To give somebody push access to the 'build' repository, I need to file an
admin issue. Why can't I control access to the repository I maintain?
In fact, why I can't even edit repository description?
- Suppose I find a random typo in library X. In SVN, I can just fix it within a minute.
In Git, I would have to either ask for push access (which I think won't scale), or
I need to fork the repo, to the change, and submit a pull request, which is equally
cumbersome. Was not Git supposed to simplify things?
