Uploading is a fairly important change in the packaging, and it's useful
to know who made the decision to upload. In the case of sponsored
uploads, that is the contributor that requested the upload, not
necessarily the person who made all the changes.

That's the GPG signature. It's not part of the changelog.
I often end up with:
* Team Upload
-- Contributor <...> ...
which works well for me.
