I'm not sure what you mean, but the DebianKernel page is at
/Teams/DebianKernel. Calling it "DebianKernelTeam" would have put it
at /Teams/DebianKernelTeam. Anyway, many pages on the wiki have a
wiki style and shouldn't be taken too seriously.

   Note also the reference in the previous para to
"the Debian Med team" (and to Debian Med).
The Debian Med team is the team working on Debian Med (which is the
official name of... Debian Med). If we refer to "the Debian Kernel
team" in the same fashion, that implies we're referring to the team
working on "Debian Kernel". But there's no such thing as "Debian
There's also a http://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernel pointing at
https://lists.debian.org/debian-kernel/, #debian-kernel on
irc.debian.org, and so on.
The debian-kernel mailing list follows our mailing list naming conventions, i.e. debian-foo, which go back to when these were hosted by Pixar. Similarly, our IRC channels generally start with "debian-" so they're in a pseudo-namespace (which used to be particularly useful before irc.debian.org became OFTC). That doesn't mean "Debian French", for example, means something.
