Electronics packaging team
The pkg-electronics team collaborates on maintenance of electronics-related packages for Debian. All discussion and co-ordination is on the <firstname.lastname@example.org> mailing list.
Team members may maintain electronics packages independently; there is no obligation to share all electronics package development.
Anyone is welcome to join; please post to the list. Also you can join the team on Alioth to get access to the Git repository.

The appropriate maintainer and uploaders line for team packages are:
Maintainer: Debian Electronics Team <email@example.com> Uploaders: Hamish Moffatt <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Wesley J. Landaker <email@example.com>, Ramakrishnan Muthukrishnan <firstname.lastname@example.org>
These lists include all packages, not just maintained by the team:
Note about application categories
"Engineering;Electronics;" are used as application categories, they _are_ non-standard, but categories such as (Education and Science) are completely inappropriate for the engineering applications maintained by the team.
This course of action does cause lintian to give desktop-entry-lacks-main-category warnings, and those warnings are ignored.
Also, extra-xdg-menus is to be added to the Recommends field (in debian/control) to provide menu categories for Electronics applications.
