team ownership handed out to random person by accident

Asked by Pierre Vorhagen

By accident, team ownership for the DIY Marketing Team ( was handed out to a person that happened to have "diy" as its nick. ( The former owner expected Launchpad to give him a search result prompt rather than directly handing it out.

The DIY Marketing Teams projects are abandoned and have been handed over to the team taking over the lead: SpreadUbuntu (

This happened whilst I was chatting with the former owner, Jenda Vancura, on Jabber.
Could the team ownership be handed over to me or to the Spread Ubuntu team please?

An email will be sent to the members of the DIY Marketing Team to inform them that their projects are being taken up again by the new Spread Ubuntu team and that they can join it. The DIY Marketing Team will then be deleted. But anyway, for now, the problem is that the ownership has slipped out of hand :)

Hi, I've authorized this to go to either Jenda or Martin A since I know they are on the team (and I used to be part of it). I found Martin and he's agreed to take this and transfer ownership after talking to Jenda.
