We = developers/maintainers/Debian as a whole
It seemed obvious to me.
I understand members of the release team feel particularly responsible to
do various release-critical tasks that should have been done by the
maintainers but haven't (for various reasons). And I guess that's the
reason of your remark.
But that's not scalable ultimately. So I think it's a good move to say
we support testing and we expect every maintainer to take care of their
packages there (as opposed to the current situation where too much of that
work is left in the hands of the release team).
