What cannot be automatically generated is the other side of the 
intersection:
https://sources.debian.net/src/gnome-pkg-tools/0.19.9/pkg-gnome.team/

And you cannot automatically generate whom the team considers as members.

This is policy specific to a team, where some team members might only 
work in git (see the lintian example) and others might have left the
team recently.
