There's no question that you have veto over who gets access to your box.

However, from evolt.org's PoV, we have absolute rights to determine who we
wish to have access *on evolt.org's behalf*.

It's for both parties to agree on who gets access to your box on
evolt.org's behalf.

It's the same with the RaQ running everything else btw. If those of us who
own that weren't OK with $evolter getting a login, $evolter wouldn't get a
login. However, evolt.org could quite legitimately decide who it wanted to
have access to leo, deo (etc).

IoW it's for evolt.org to nominate people, who you can grant access to, or
not if you don't think they're safe with the access they'd get. It's only
when evolt.org and you can't agree that there's a problem.
