`weakest link' is not always the case for each package release. It might 
happens that only `strongest links' has been involved in a package release 
also. Furthermore, a single maintainer could also has a `bad day' and produce 
a bad package release. So, I don't believe there is unified formula to 
measure how much a team is being strong, it all boils down to have a good 
communication inside the group. You will hadly have a good rollover with a 
single maintainer..., well except NMUers and Hijackers.

Yes, we deal with human beings, which are all different sometimes ;-)
