findTeam(text="") doesn't find all teams

Bug #306844 reported by Markus Korn
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

I would like to use the API to get the number of teams registered in launchpad.
My idea was to use
  (actually len(launchpad.people.findTeam(text="")) but this is a known bug in launchpadlib)
this returns a number of about 1030 teams on staging and edge
However the statistics box on says that there are about 4000 teams registered in launchpad. The huge difference seems to indicate that either the number on the webpage or the number returned by the API is wrong.

If given an empty string, findTeam() will return only the teams which have one or more email addresses.

It should return all teams, just like findPerson() does when it's given an empty string.

Note, though, that the docstring of findTeam() doesn't say it will return all teams if given an empty string.

Changed in launchpad:
status: New → Triaged
