I'm not sure this is wise. If a suspended/expelled developers still receives
the -core mails, he is more likely to, in his fury of being
suspended/expelled, use this privilege in a negative way.
Also, how long would this last? If a developer is suspended for 2 months but
he doesn't return, I assume the read-only access to -core is removed as
