The introduction of the Salsa "debian" area - with its accompanying 
explicit rules of being more team-ish than the similar area in Alioth - 
was indeed a game changer for many packages which I had previously 
maintained in smaller teams.  I guess (and hope) that's the case for 
others too.  Not sure how, but it might be possible to check that thoery 
if possible to gather statistics of how many packages was in the Alioth 
debian area compared to the Salsa debian area.
