It doesn't seem to be working quite right:
(from the Maintainers file)
binutils Jim Pick <email@example.com>
binutils-dev Jim Pick <firstname.lastname@example.org>
binutils-multiarch Jim Pick <email@example.com>
cpp Jim Pick <firstname.lastname@example.org>
gcc Jim Pick <email@example.com>
I'm not the i386 maintainer for those packages. I maintain
binutils-corel (soon to be defunct) and gcc-corel (likely stay around
I was listed as the maintainer for the X packages as well - but that
was fixed when I asked for the xfree86-corel package to be removed.
