I think you're misunderstanding.

The purpose of the small project groups is *only* for review
capabilities -- i.e. merge requests. So essentially, you join the groups
to opt-in to the merge request for that group's repositories (and have
the ability to change the status of the merge requests). That's *all*.

All repositories will have commit access by, and *only* by +kde-developers.

And all repositories will have admin access by, and *only* by,
+kde-sysadmin. (Should it be renamed +kde-sysadmins? Dunno.)
