actually there's no more UX team (list). UX mailing list has been shut down
months ago because it used to refer to dev list for most of
decisions/advices so UX matters are now discussed either in the dev mailing
list (we maybe can keep this thread) or, I guess until QGIS3 release, in
the qgis3_UIX_discussion repository.
