[Chicken-users] Don't modify other people's eggs

I'm a bit annoyed to see that some eggs that I've created have been
modified directly by other people (sometimes in ways that I'm not sure
I would approve of) and new releases have been created by them (often
without even updating the wiki's changelog).

I would prefer to be sent patches and to remain in control of *my*
eggs.  If others continue comitting to my eggs directly, I will be
forced to fork them (my own original eggs!) and maintain them in a
separate repository where only I and people I explicitly authorize can
commit to them.  I, obviously, would prefer not to have to do this.

As such, I would like to ask anybody with global commit access to the
Chicken eggs repository to NEVER modify other people's eggs without
consulting with them.  If there's an emergency and you feel you need
to update the egg directly, you should at least drop a note to the
original author.

Thank you.
