Maybe there is a bit of a misunderstanding here. There is a difference
between the team being closed down, i.e. no work being done at all,
and the team being closed, which just mean that you cannot become a
member of the team before you are approved. Closing the team is from
my POV a necessity to assure quality and the Danish team is closed,
but it is certainly not closed down ;) (More like slightly dormant,
until we get a way to distinguish between packages that contain Ubuntu
specific strings and those that don't ;)
