10 As I said... I wouldn't have a problem with that. The only real issue I
11 would see is do we really need 3 names for the same thing? I've always
12 seen it as a team that maintains packages, and a project is an
13 organizational unit (such as release engineering or infrastructure) that
14 doesn't necessarily correlate to packages.
16 Why not just s/herd/team/ and leave the project definition alone, as
17 suggested earlier? Then we can quit discussing this and get back to
18 breaking our new developer box. *grin*
