        How would you handle dilution of responsibility?  Or too many
 people making broad commits to to many packages without considering
 the details of the particular package being touched?

        When everyone is responsible for something, no one is

Group admins. A group can have more than one admin, but at least one
is reachable and/or is leading the group (eg: python-modules, d-i), if
not the group organization is broken, but it happens more often with
the one man approach by default, IMHO.
