OK, then I have misunderstood, though I have talked to gstreamer people
about it. I am very much in favour of modules having multiple (ideally
2) maintainers. But there does not seem to be anyone with the authority
to say "Now we are feature/API/code frozen. No, you can't commit that
patch now", or "This is what I think we should be working on". A normal
GNOME maintainer can and does say those things.

But things seem to be moving in that direction, so I'm happy.
