IMHO, you're overestimating the _additional_ risks of having 2 BSPs at
the same time instead of one (which already has the risks you mention
per se).

First of all, it has been observed already, that a group of more than 2
DDs hacking in a single room will end up communicating on IRC :-) While
jokish, I think this defeats your argument about "local coordination" in
a single BSP. This is not meant to be polemic at all, it is just my
personal experience.

To that end, BSPs already have tools to avoid conflicts *even among the
local participant*, which are: the #debian-bugs channel you've already
mentioned and the "claim" and "comment" features in Debbugs and

Thanks nevertheless for the coordination page!
