Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)

  -> Deswegen habe ich anschließend den 2. Vorschlag gemacht. Hätte wohl den 1. wegmachen müssen. @ Steffen: Es geht vermutlich um Nachrücker(-Projekte), die von Personen entworfen sind. Wer gewinnt: das Projekt od. die Person?

neutral  Horst Huber (X): Or do they mean "replacement teams"?
