are you referring to the fact that there is a 'Debian Multimedia 
Packages Maintainers' and 'Debian Multimedia Team'? I believe the split 
is deliberate for administrative reasons. AFAIU debian-multimedia is the 
umbrella, including testers, interested users etc. and used for general 
discussion; pkg-multimedia-maintainers is specifically for the 
maintainers of multimedia packages and is focussed on functional 
requirements for producing packages.

Personally, I'm happy with the arrangement. I just think we should get 
some discussion going on debian-multimedia, just to see who's alive. ;-)
