dalke: DDJ ran a very funny review of Yourdon's "Time Bomb 2000". I agree with you about Yourdon; the few useful observations in his books can be found in more readable sources such as the XP books, and there's lots of uninteresting filler material. (In Rise/Resurrection, he draws an object/model diagram of the hiring process for programmers!)

mwh: if we were using BitKeeper, where people exchange patchsets, that wouldn't be too difficult; you'd have a mail alias that automatically applies patches from mwh and gvr, but holds patches from unknown people. With CVS or Subversion, though, I think all we could do is apply changes and make it easy to back them out if they get rejected.
