Do you mean -contributors? If so, I'm still a little bit confused what 
benefits this team structure will provide. Can you explain?

Well, ubuntu-universe-contributors had the sole purpose to manage revu's 
keyring. Imho it makes sense to still have such a team with only that 
purpose. Changes in such a team should actually only be needed, if keyring 
syncs break, hence it makes more sense to have revu-admins be the only team 
administrators for such a team (which should get updated to match reality 
actually; I don't have a slightest idea who is a revu admin on sparky 
actually). Especially I'm not seeing a link there to the mentoring team or 
motu school. Am I missing s.th. completely here?

Oh, and I particular object that it would make me the only person in the set 
of team admins, who can also fix up revu :P.

P.S.: I guess it would make more sense to have Richard as revu Coordinator a 
team admin of revu-admins. Once we'll move to spooky, we are in need of 
admins again, to do the usual annoying work like keyring syncs and cleanup of 
the input queue etc. In my ideal world, someone (e.g. Richard) would recruit 
people and talk to uwsa so that the necessary accounts are created on spooky. 
Then I could lean back and enjoy :).
