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?
