Latest team features of the Debian Package Tracker

Hello people,

in the last months, partly due to the demise of Alioth and partly
thanks to a Google Summer of Code, the Debian Package Tracker gained a few
useful features for maintainer teams:

TLDR summary:

- if you create a team on the package tracker, you get an email

  This work is happening in a Google Summer of Code project
  and it's not yet ready for prime-time but your feedback (and help, see

  Arthur Del Esposte <arthurmde@gmail.com>) and on

And as usual, your help to maintain tracker.debian.org is more than
welcome. With the switch to Salsa/GitLab a few months ago, the process to
contribute to the project has been streamlined and is now easier than
ever. Have a look at the documentation for contributors:

BTW the entire documentation has been restructured and expanded:
