As suggested in the loco-directory question, I have followed this up
in #ubuntu-locoteams. The story thus far:

   allenap: Hi, the Ubuntu Washington LoCo has two pages. One of them
            points to a team that no longer exists, so I wondered if
            someone could delete it? More details here:
     daker: allenap, i think czajkowski can do it
   allenap: daker: Tip-top, thank you.
czajkowski: allenap: aye we know
czajkowski: nothing we can do about it though, it's a db issue
czajkowski: nothing the council can do
 cjohnston: czajkowski: cant merge it?
czajkowski: cjohnston: nope seemingly not
 cjohnston: does it give an error?
czajkowski: cjohnston: I don't know. going by what I was told.
czajkowski: cjohnston: ask dholbach
 cjohnston: ook
  dholbach: a db issue?
  dholbach: team admins/owner should be able to merge the teams
  dholbach: there should be a "merge teams" option there

Launchpad admins can merge teams. The team being merged deactivate/delete PPAs and Lp mailing lists if they exist.

Hi John,

I think Ben said it was solved because he was able to join the team by
going to the newer, working, team entry in the LoCo Directory:
