Debian Maintainer

Since yesterday, I am a Debian maintainer. This will help me and my sponsors, which have to do less now. I can now upload new versions of my packages if the version in unstable contains the “Dm-Upload-Allowed” field in the dsc (and only if the package is not NEW).

For more information about the Concept of Debian Maintainers, see

I’m very happy about this, as it makes my life easier. But this does not mean that I don’t want to be a DD anymore. A DD is able to vote, to sponsor packages, to upload NEW packages, and many more things. (BTW: I’m currently at T&S step)
