I'd prefer havind not-comaintained packages in a different directory too, so
people do not get confused. In addition, not setting the maintainer field to
the group list will make us not receive the BTS messages unless we subscribe
to those packages.

If we create a directory for non-comaintained packages, we might also think
about whether we want to include or exclude commit messages from those
messages to te -commits list.

About the name, even thought "Debian Games Team" is good enough for me, people
seem to prefer a more creative one. I'd like one that it's neutral enough for
including most kind of games and gamers. I've been suggested "Ministry of
Entertainment" or things like that. Any suggestions? In any case, we should
better a common name for all the packages, I guess.

I can add you to the group if you want, just tell me :)
