The logic of the patch:
I just wished to update the dependencies (first 2 changes).
Then I thought, I am not Chris Lyttle and others updated the file too ->
(last change)
"Team" requires plural form, (change 3,4)
Finally change 4 got an incomplete adjustment to current policies.

I don't know if the original author still wish to get emails.

In theory I would like to scan all readme etc files for keyword mail and
add a note "For details see".
OTOH I think of people living in regions where internet access is not
available or very expensive.

Question: Could there be problems with the documentation, where first
the locale user lists should be contacted instead of the devel list? I
believe so, e.g. translation issues, misunderstanding of terms ...

Your opinion?
