I think you confuse two things (freely modifiable texts and assurance of
the code consistency … for the latter we have versioning control
systems, code review, canonical repositories, etc.; programmers don't
like random changes in their source code any more than the Biblical
scholars do), but that's not the point. Exactly for this purpose I said
"source code repository OR available maintainers".
