I understand that would more closely mirror what we've had on alioth,
but i'm not convinced it's necessary.

The advantage of not adding/maintaining a separate group is twofold:

 0) simplicity for us -- no maintenance for us, as the set of debian
    developers will already be maintained accurately in salsa itself.

 1) simplicity for others -- many packages will be in the "debian"
    project group already.  For people looking for code, or looking to
    do research, or wanting to make a small contribution, the more our
    setup is like other packages, the easier it is to encourage external

What would we gain from having a gnupg-team group?

( my thinking on this stuff is influenced by discussions like

If there is a DD who wants to contribute to the debian packaging for
GnuPG, i can't imagine wanting to discourage them :)

And if someone who is not a DD wants to contribute, they can come chat
with us on whatever our replacement mailing list is, and we can grant
permissions explicitly.

I'm open to doing things differently if you feel strongly about it, but
i'd definitely like to understand the reasons for doing so.

see https://bugs.debian.org/876144  :(  Alexander Wirt suggests that the
listmasters do not want to maintain such a list :/

Sounds like Werner is up for hosting debian at gnupg.org.  shall we take
him up on that?
