I agree, and I usually ask requestors to contact an existing maintainer and collaborate. Inevitably the existing maintainer does not want to allow access to his/her server, or the requestor claims s/he cannot possibly collaborate with someone in a different admin unit. I have some sympathy for that. I could not give another unit at BC access to the server I use to publish boc without violating university security regulations. 

The more annoying thing from my perspective are the repeat requests from the _same_ unit after several months of inaction by the first requestor. I try to catch those. 

And the other day someone asked to establish an archive for a uni dept that  has been in RePEc for years. Turns out they have no idea how to access their existing content so they wanted to just start over!!
