Jakub, thank you for starting this thread. As you can see from Jeremy's
response, you have a couple of options. You had previously told me you
wanted the repository to be "official", and since the existing teams do
not want to manage it I think that it is likely that you will want to
create a new team for it. However, since that path does introduce some
obligations, before you go ahead it would be good to understand what
benefits you are seeking by joining an official team. Can you fill in
some background for us, so we can offer the best guidance?
