Yeah, well, I don't really personally think it's worth it to reupload
to slink just to get a maintainer change in. I bet it's a little
fuzzy in the developers-reference because it really doesn't matter one
way or another. A frozen upload with just a maintainer name change
should be accepted, however, since it is "no new code", after all.
