Nothing terribly bad :) The debian-gtk-gnome guys are trying to get
most of the GNOME packages maintained by a team, which is a good
thing. I really believe that for such a large set of packages, team
maintenance is the only good way.
I find it a pity that some maintainers of GNOME-related packages
refuse to join this team.
I'm not involved in the maintenance of core GNOME packages, so I won't
comment further on that.
