I was thinking that for the machine-files / option-files /
submit-scripts / run-scripts the original author of the file in
question should be consulted (since there may well be reasons for why
things were done the way they were done) which is not necessarily Erik.
Eg for a machine that one has no access to, one would usually not be
able to comment anyway.

For simfactory's *source code*, review is required and the original
author (or official maintainer) would have final say.

If we end up with people breaking machines too often, then we have
to revise this of course.
