Bug Description

When I create a recipe, there are two natural choices as to who should own it:
  1. Me
  2. The owner of the branch I'm basing the recipe on

All of the other teams I'm in are very unlikely to actually be relevant. The UI for selecting recipe owner should make it easy to select either myself or the owner of the branch I'm basing the recipe on, perhaps in a way similar to selecting the target branch of a merge proposal.

I assume you don't want people to be able to select the owner if they are not a member of the owner?

Right.

If we're going to give suggestions, I wonder if branch.owner goes far enough? Won't some projects have packaging teams? Perhaps we should show members of branch.target.owner that have PPAs? Or what about owners of existing recipes for branch.target?

And should we omit the suggestions from the general list?
