Well, if you want to know what's going on, you can always google. MOTU
Report #1, from 1st Mar 2005 (http://lwn.net/Articles/125666/) lists nine
MOTU, while the MOTU launchpad page (https://launchpad.net/people/motu/)
currently lists 35 MOTU, and the wiki lists some 22 MOTU teams
(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTUTeams). These days there's also a fair
number of MOTU wannabes, I believe.
