Our teams are generally working very well. Are they well filled? They
are surely filled by very qualified people, but not all the teams have a
lot of spare manpower.

If elected, one of my first tasks will be to do a "status check" of our
core teams, to:
- understand who is active currently, who is going to be active in a year,
  who is active but would like to step down, ...
- encourage the teams to think about possible new members, so that they
  can be contacted and trained early.
(I will not go through every team (including all packaging teams),
but instead focus on the teams that have the ability, when
malfunctionning, to severely harm the project.)

I think that most teams require quite specific skills, and most team
members like what they do. So I'm not going to force or encourage people
to move to other teams. However, I think that it is important that our
teams are sufficiently staffed so that one can leave a team without
feeling guilty.
