Originally the lock was there to make sure that people with stable/*
rights were aware of the stable policy (in particular which changes are
backportable depending on the support phase). Rules to apply in stable
reviews are *completely* different from the rules to apply on master
reviews - so being trusted for master doesn't magically make you aware
of review rules for stable.

That said, I thought that we now defaulted to trusting the local stable
liaison to ensure that the policy was well-known and directly add people
to the group... (with stable-maint being able to remove people if
needed, ask for forgiveness rather than permission, etc.)

I guess that's something we could discuss in the Stable team room
(Monday morning) at the PTG for those who will be around then.
