Hi Boris,

at that time I did not know about subgroups.

In any case, I think that it should not make a big differnece: since we
want to not only share the repositories with the whole science-team
group, but also with the Debian and the future Debian Med groups, we
need anyway to manage the group sharing of the repositories.

(In the long term we need to write a command that spots which
repositories are not appropriately shared, and corrects that).

Following the discussions on flat structures and stable URLs, I also
started to wonder about just putting the repositories in the Debian
group directly.  This would not make a big difference, except that the
risk of accident of a) our API calls to touch the wrong repository, and
b) other DD's API calls to mess accidently with our repositories would
be slightly higher.

Have a nice day,
