[just realized that my mail did go to Raphael only, not intended]
Raphael, thanks for your interest. It's true that I did not respond to
emails ignoring our discussions from January and February on this very
list. It would be nice to build on these discussions for the
transition. Any news from your side? I think I did make it clear,
that we should get away from the transition system for all kind of
packages and implemented that (but side-tracked by other work in the
last month). Please expect an update from this at this weekend.

I'm sure one or more teams could be useful, packagers should be able
to decide on their own if they want to join a team. There are lot of
packages, where people did ask for maintainance (i.e. python-xml), but
got no response. On the other teams like deb-scipy seem to just work.
