I summarized that recently.  Hmmm - ah, yes, here it is:

Feel free to add that info to our wiki page, if you find it useful.

No problem at all.  Teamwork requires _someone_ in the team to be a DD 
or DM, which is already satisfied here.  On the contrary, working in 
teams is a good way to improve your skills before applying for DD/DM.

No policy exist about that.  Generally in Debian there is two styles of 
naming source packages: a) follow upstream naming, og b) same as (main) 
binary package.

Some in Debian find it outright wrong to do a) whereas noone (to my 
knowledge) complains about b), so if you want to please everybody, then 
do b).

I am not a "nice guy" but try to find my own sense in things. I have 
practiced a), but is slowly try convince myself that b) makes better 
sense.

Ok.  Good luck with that.
