It's fine to keep it here. As mentioned before OSGeoLive still includes
opencpn and they take the bulk of their packages from Debian GIS.

We have more packages that are not strictly GIS in team, but having a
package in a team is always better than not. As it is easier for other
contributors to get involved, without having to become an official
maintainer or uploader.

Please note that the Debian GIS team has very few active contributors,
so don't get the wrong impression that there are many people here to
co-maintain the package with you. You will be primarily responsible for
the package, just as you would be outside of a team.

Kind Regards,
