I think that the best policy is always to accept anything and anyone as 
long as you have the option of kicking out the vandals before they do 
too much damage... Having a pool that is offline is one option, but the 
problem is that accepts have to happen fast or people lose interest. 
Another option would be to have an online "uncensored" pool that gets 
routinely checked for vandalism, but then again, cleaning would also 
have to happen fast.

As for "developers" I was thinking about all the people that have signed 
up in the wiki... They could automatically get rights as moderators, no? 
Until someone starts making repeated gaffes that is, and then it is 
possible to exclude them, right?

It might be desirable to limit access to the cvs to package maintainers 
but have a (much) wider pool of reviewers/moderators.

Anyway, I'm now beginning to look at a piece of php code called "OutSide 
Photos". It's GPL (from sourceforge) but I'm not sure if it's any good. 
In a sense, what is needed is a robust review mechanism, rather than an 
upload gadget. I can put in some time coding in php if it's needed and 
if someone can review my code (I'm not a programmer and tend to make 
lots of overcooked bolognese when coding ;).
