Agreed with Dion on SVN, having a trusted team is far better regardless of
the VC system in use. Even with GitHub, unless you're doing very thorough
code reviews on every pull ... then someone could slip bad/evil code in.

Remember the WordPress plugin repo is that it's still a partly-manual
system, http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/. Perhaps someone from
Automattic could convince their future Community Handyman,
http://automattic.com/work-with-us/community-handyman/ to update the
plugin/SVN interface. Maybe something with a more-automated signup, with an
'owner' user, a separate "deploy" option, and more-granular permissions that
the plugin admin could control in a web UI.

(admittedly, I'm applying to be that Handyman...)
