Given the workload on many core packages, I think it's not really
reasonable to expect to have a big team responsible of many packages.
I rather like the fact that we have smaller teams each dedicated to
very few core packages. People can move from teams to teams and be part of
multiple teams if needed.

You can't have quality if you don't have 2-3 volunteers feeling personaly
responsible for a given package.
