I didn't see this documented anywhere, and "every member is encouraged to
do general QA work on all the packages: fix bugs, test packages, improve
them to use the latest python packaging tools, etc." (from
http://python-modules.alioth.debian.org/python-modules-policy.html )
sounds to me like an invitation to change officially deprecated helpers to
dh_python2. Anyway, I would like to see some more explicit guildelines
about what am I allowed to do without prior consent? Right now, after
seeing similar complaints in the past, I do not feel motivated to do any
work on other team packages.

I never saw any definitions of what changes are small. Explicit, you know,
is better than implicit.
