I'm absolutely not thrilled of seeing lists as maintainers of more and more
packages. Ask our release managers - there were cases where a list was set
as maintainer, and when the release mgr contacted the maintainer address
because some relatively urgent action was necessary, nobody on that list
felt compelled to react.
Group maintenance yes, as in 'everybody of a group of people has commit
permissions on that pkg' (and is allowed to add himself as Uploader instead
of doing NMUs), but I feel it would be better for Debian if the maintainer
were a real person, namely the person 'where the bucket stops', to avoid
bug ping-pong in all variations.
Cheap things are of no value, valuable things are not cheap.
