The authors could then ‘own’ their own XEP repo - push to development branches, accept updates (to draft XEPs), etc. This would need a much higher level of automation than we have now though, and I just don’t have the bandwidth to do anything on it at the moment unfortunately.

To be frank, I think the one-repo-per-XEP approach is a terrible idea. I
see not a single major advantage, but it would require and enormous
maintenance and setup effort. Simply have a few people which review PRs
against the repo for some simple constraints, e.g. that they don't mess
with other peoples XEPs, and then merge them (note that this is
basically the same approach the xsf/xeps repo uses). It would be
possible to setup something like this in 30 minutes.
