I know that there's some duplication. But until this page is easy to edit
by the various teams themselves, this page will regularly have outdated

It's quite possible that we should shrink /intro/organization to list only
constitutional roles and that the wiki should be the reference for the
rest where each team can manage its own page.

BTW, the list for "Alioth administration" is wrong in the website. Wichert
Akkerman has left and we recruited Stephen Gran.

The wiki has less chance of being outdated than the website. So I'd rather
have this particular content there and have the website link there. I know
that the wiki can't be translated currently but this is content for
contributors and they have to contribute in english anyway.

Anyway, this is for later, once the wiki is a somewhat complete
replacement for that page. Right now, it's far from that.

No. I want something that matches reality of day-to-day work. Not yet
another theoretical description of how we should probably do things.
