While I like well organized structures, doing this on salsa alone is not
doing much IMHO, you would need to enforce the same policy for team
names in all places debian, which is a much bigger task/issue.

I hope no team name will be changed without the team(-owner)'s consent,
as that might drive people away from salsa altogether, which is not what
you want (I assume).

For example, I have spent much time in the past week creating

If somebody was to break that now without my consent, I'd be "royally
pissed" and extremely tempted to move it to github or similar instead.

Side note:
Personally I find the "pkg-" prefix to be extremely ugly and am very
happy with the "-team" suffix. Thanks a lot to formorer and the salsa
team for their good work!
