Bug Description

Ronelio Aloria writes: "I experimentally created two teams in Launchpad so as to learn things about handling teams in Launchpad. My question is: how do I remove the team that I don't want to keep? There are no members yet. Thank you." For another example, see <>.

This is not a duplicate of bug 29177 (about merging two teams), because a team may be obsolete without there being any applicable team to merge it into, in the same way that bug 2773 (about deleting a person's account) was valid regardless on the ability to merge accounts. For example, someone may create a team and later realize they should have created a project instead; or a team may be obsoleted by the introduction of structural subscriptions.

This bug can be implemented by using team merging (with the registry administrators team as the appropriate celebrity, I suggest) as the backend; if that is the case then a simple UI to trigger this would be enough.

I'll make an effort to add this feature before my next CHR day so that team owners do not need to make requests to have this done.

please delete the team ~gnucash-translators. Upstream decided against using Launchpad for translations, after all.

Hey Rolf, I've done the delete but in future could you open an Answer/Question against the Launchpad Project for similar requests?
