Yes, this is a team, but...

It seems to me that it is not our policy (or social style - we need not 
have policies about everything IMO) that anyone works on anything here - 
without prior coordination.

It is always nice to ask _before_ messing with packages you are not 
directly involved in.  Not sure if that was the case here, but from the 
reaction it seems so.

In the Perl team we us the Uploaders field as a hint about who in the 
team is directly involved with maintaining it.  We might do the same (if 
not policy here already?).

I see teamwork not as all of us eating directly from the same big plate, 
but sitting in the same room eating together - being more directly 
inspired by work of each other than in big Debian, and some of us 
sharing some plates - but asking nicely before tasting treats from the 
plates of each other.

So, instead of saying that "it is easy to roll back" I suggest that you 
roll it back yourself, IOhannes, since you did the change that is 
clearly disliked - technically correct or not.

Afterwards, when not distracted by a social issue, it is easier discuss 
the technical issue of what package relation makes best sense for that 
particular package.

hope this makes sense,
