You are indeed correct in your Yet Another Update; the source is available to pmdevils and gods, and patches can be submitted by pmdevils, but only applied by gods.
I thought this was a bad thing (see my bigest XP sink, Let the doors open Wide), but have since reconsidered -- reading the changelogs and seeing the number of security bugs fixed since then makes me belive that opening the source to randoms would increase greatly the risk of being hacked by trolls.
