It's clear now that the documentation needs update. It isn't stated in
policy.txt and/or subversion.html. I looked to some packages before
sending the first message under this topic and i was thinking 'uh, we
have no default'.

FYI, there are 111 packages in our svn repository and only 90 are
listed at qa.d.o using this e-mail. It's clear that there are some
pkg-perl stuff floating under a different maintainer field (it is not
111-90 due to obvious reasons). I did two uploads (sponsoring) some
weeks ago keeping what was in the svn repository (maintainers field
with the maintainer's name and w/o uploaders).
I still recommend that we use the metainfo stuff cited in the previous
message, updating the documentation and setting the default maintainer
field to: Debian Perl Group
If you're confused it's just what nomeata did with libalias-perl but
with a uploaders filled with all current pkg-perl members. How? Check
my previous message again.
