to me this is a disadvantage. I don’t have enough time at my hands to
look at every single thread and patch in my inbox and decide whether
I can/want to work on it. Thus I’d prefer if I could unsubscribe
from -patches (I’m not even subscribed to -bug/-commit) and instead
only look at bugs/patches/commits related to packages/components I’m
interested into/I actually use.

To that end having more structure would help. Teams are just one option,
but we need a way to efficiently connect people with skills to review/help
with those who need the review/help. This sounds similar to what
Gentoo’s Bug Wranglers[1] do. I believe someone brought up to automate
this by suggesting reviewers for patches based on the commit history
of packages/components.
