Default Packaging Branch Cleanup (was: Lucid Packaging and QA)

Well, moving core KDE to kubuntu-dev makes it unpushable for non-devs, which
in consequence increases the required amount of work to get things from other
contributors into the archives (i.e. the sponsor needs to care about merging).

This leads to
a) slowed down development (well, a bit at least )
b) increased risk of something going wrong

The idea of having everything in kubuntu-members is that everyone who is
trusted Kubuntu contributor can contribute without too much hassle for the
sponsor and the contributor alike.

Then again, you are very right that the current list is one big load of
unprocessable data. IMHO that is however a representatinal issue of LP
alltogether, that needs to be resolved for more sensible vcs development
anyway (i.e. what james_w is working on for all of Ubuntu). Ultimately I
suppose we'd need stronger linking of branches to packages, so that you can go
like "show me all KDE stuff in main (or the kubuntu package set, for those who
prefer archive reorganization terminology ) with packaging branch owned by
kubuntu-members", which then would probably be the best approach for main

I'd be very interested in the thoughts of others on this....
