No. Every ubuntu-core-dev is already kubuntu-dev (or rather has access
to the Kubuntu package set, which is represented by them being member
of kubuntu-dev). However membership in kubuntu-dev does not grant you
membership in kubuntu-members. One can be dev without being member, as
being dev only requires technical knowledge and reliability and
strictly speaking no existing history of contribution to the growth
and awesomeness of Kubuntu. It just happens to be that right now every
dev is also member, that is not to say there might not be a case in
the future where this is not the case.

So, I think it would indeed be best if we create a new team, after all
having that plunder under kubuntu-members seems a bit odd anyway (or
so I thought when we started the branches back in the great
restructuring of 08).

I find the proposed names a bit boring though :P
