Please do rename it, sooner rather than later. Makes sense while salsa's
still in beta for conventions still to be established.

Yes, any team DD could use the script Drew linked to earlier:

That's how I joined the Salsa team, a team Owner will approve it.

This is the bit that's shown up minor friction. Permission reference:

As requested by Boris, Carlos set all DDs to Master and a few backup
team members to Owner. DMs and other maintainers have Developer
permission which in practice is sufficient for every day usage.

Repository creation within the team namespace therefore requires
sign-off by a DD, which I think is fine once the batch import is done.
It looks like repositories can even be transferred later, so could be
initially created in the Debian or user's namespace if needed.

Sufficient, yes, but I would recommend keeping the broader permissions
to encourage drive-by contributions between team members.
