 	If a package is owned by tech-pkg its available for anyone
 	to update, but if it has a maintainer then its considered
 	poilte to notify them before updating it. This can act as
 	a deterrant for updating packages.

 	Many of the packages for which I am the 'maintainer' I have
 	no problems with anyone else updating.  Would there be any
 	sense in having some way to differentiate these cases in
