I'm fine with moving libjbzip2-java (which I uploaded today) once
pkg-java has moved to Salsa (or did I missed the move?)

Hmmm, I admit I prefer a real team since I have the impression that the
love a package receives is higher than for packages that end up in the
collab-maint / debian "dustbin".

I'd prefer this a lot. We did so for Debian Med on Alioth - I'm not
sure how that works on Salsa but if we found out this will be

I agree that it does not matter much. We have some lib*-java as well as
python-* and lib*-perl packages maintained in Debian Med team if there
are only Debian Med rdepends. If we think about it like in the
libjbzip2-java case we should not only move back this one but also other
packages to the Java team. That would be fine for me but there are
always cases where one needs to decide between (at least) two teams.
