All else being equal, with my Panfrost maintainer hat, I am in favour.
Marge Bot access would reduce merge friction for their frequent
contributions, given the substantial timezone difference with our team
at Collabora. Additionally, labeling access would ease triage for us;
although I subscribe specifically to Panfrost MRs, I have to monitor all
MRs to ensure I haven't missed any from them, a frequent occurrence.
