I thought the proposal goes into the the oppsite direction. If there are
no team guidelines, the normal NMU rules apply for non team members: you
don't upgrade to new upstream versions, don't change the packaging to
use dh, wait weeks for a response from the maintainers before salvaging.
If that's not the case, that's nice, but we have to tell that to new
people. So I hope that the guidelines encourage new members to 'just do
it' (and drop a line, but does that hurt?)
So, you want to vote for C?
