Re: Bug#281416: ITP: debian-br-team-tools -- Tools for the Debian Brasil Packaging Team
GNOME and Debian-BR teams, any ideas on creating a single package to
provide meta-information for all teams in Debian? This way we will avoid
creating a package for each team, when all they need is a canonical list
of uploaders... read below:

Sure, no problem with that, for me.

Yeah, the problem here is mainly the list of people who are part of the
team. It must be in a canonical, central location, and the solution
'till now is using a package to carry this list. Maybe we can create a
single package to carry all the teams meta-info in the future?
