I'd favor a default-allow model.

Personally my vision is to have several dozens at least, simply to let
voting results reflect somewhat common consensus among the wider community.

That's my thoughts as well.

I think the info can be easily extracted from Github, see e.g. here:

We tried to avoid having only former OpenWrt people early on and having
the feed maintainer participate in the decisions would be great - so I
guess it will be something in the 40-80 people ballpark (just a hunch

Yes I think so too.
