If users are assigning bugs to a team, in virtually all cases they are 
wrong to do so.  Assignment indicates some expectation that work will be 
done.  End users do not have the right to direct developers (whether paid 
or volunteer).

We've already been through this once before and concluded that a joint team 
with Debian is the best way to do this work.  Since Debian is our upstream, 
it makes complete sense to focus the work there.

It really seems that this new team is about marketing, so perhaps a clearer 
choice of names would be helpful and avoid confusion?
