Basically we're the wild west.

You can do what you want, feel free to put projects under the Ubuntu
Marketing team umbrella, it's a good idea to see what people think of
the idea first and try to ensure no-one has strong objections to it though.

In general the only kind of "official" thing you do to join an existing
project is to click the "Join this team" button on Launchpad. In
practice a launchpad team will rarely be needed for marketing stuff -
they're mainly used for controlling access to version control repositories.

In the OSS sense you generally join a team/project just by interacting
with it enough.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
