It's nice to know who the team actually *is* though; having a
team.debian.org webpage or something where such things could be listed
would be lovely.

(So that you can tell if both/all the team is on holidays, if a response
from someone is official, who to try talking to on irc to get an immediate
response, etc; looking through changelogs, or mailing list archives
is okay, but not terribly convenient, especially for team members who
happen not to post a lot, or happen not to upload a lot)

I really hate looking at packages maintained by a list because
I never know who's actually behind it.

(There's plenty of ways to make that not a problem, such as using the
Uploaders: field; but the above might be a useful datapoint)
