I didn't get your "we". I'm part of this group and i've made a small
proposal to change
how the uploaders field is being handled, after Daniel' first reply i
guess that we've discovered together that changing it or not we'll
need to update our policy.
In my previous message, i wrote that change the uploaders field
handling just require us update our documentation and add more
name/e-mail addresses (one for each pkg-perl member) in the uploaders
field, like in libalias-perl, i just used it as a example. Check the
package and read again my first message.
I agree with 'users contact us through the Alioth mailing address', i
didn't asked to remove this e-mail account from maintainer field. The
only thing commented about this e-mail address was something like 'it
isn't documented in our policy'.
