(I'm not upstream related, just Ubuntu translator)

IMHO splitting teams is not a good solution. Instead Rosetta (Launchpad)
should support more roles inside a team than member and administrator.
For example calling current members "supervisors" and defining members
as "weak members" without commit rights would be a good start.

I think keeping contributors outside main team could make them feel
depreciated and we should avoid it.
