For choosing the team, it depends on which expertise you want the team
which holds the package to have. For pure Python software, I would say
that the expertise of the Debian Python Team is more useful.

>From my quick look at cocotb’s documentation [3], it seems to ship at
least one binary in $PATH named `cocotb-config`. Here is how it could be

- `cocotb` srcpkg in `electronics` section;
- `python3-cocotb` binpkg in `python` section, containing the library;
- `cocotb` binpkg in `electronics` section, Depends on `python3-cocotb`
  and contains the executables.

Same advice would apply for pyuvm, which I did not look at.
