That said, even if that works, we need to be careful with this, as we would not want the maintainers key to become a marketing device for companies.

Hi Francesco,

What you put in the maintainers key must be valid GitHub handles.
It may work if you put both a team of your company (to receive notifications) and a user of your company (to get permissions to ocabot merge).
Can you try and ping me on the PR so I can follow the process?

Thanks Pedro, 

what I meant was either:

- assigning a "companyname" github account as maintainer of the module, or 
- both "companyname" and "devname" as maintainers. 

I don't think there's any issue in having multiple maintainers of a module?

The problem is that all checks go through the GitHub user, so there's no notion of other grouping form (like GitHub organizations) that allows that. It would be interesting, but it should be implemented. The per user approach is also for not having noise in mid-size organizations.
