Re: Q for Andreas Schuldei: "Small teams"??

If you are going to collect questions for the type of page you've suggested 
please do not enforce your views in the process. Henning's question was 
perfectly sensible. A great many Debianers persue their packaging efforts 
largely as an individual and are perfectly content with the status quo. The 
additional responsibility of required meetings with an ad hoc team assembled 
by unknown methods could very well drive people away from Debian.

The most common thing people hate about Debian seems to be "dealing with other 
Debianers". I strongly suspect that Andreas' plan would not lead to the 
utopia he has in mind. Team interactions should be limited to those 
functional associations required to execute the tasks at hand. Social clubs 
should not be a requirement. At least, that's my opinion.

If you need clarification, ask for it. Please do not dismiss valid questions 
out of hand.
