(sorry, I tried to cancel my previous message to reply from here - But
I cancelled with 'y', which sent the mail :-þ )
I don't think that our DMs want to be part of the uploaders field for
_every_ DM:OK package in the group! At least, I know I am an uploader
only for those packages I have some sort of personal interest in - A
DM will find himself listed for quite a bit of packages he has
probably never even touched before nor ever will!
