Until now I only uploaded with my gmx.de address.
Now I see your solution. Use a different email address to subcribe to
all packages and group them as needed. Thats a nice option. In fact
later I saw that in my case setting "comaint" to "no" does the grouping
I want. But this only works because the packages I want to put into
extra groups have different "Maintainer" field (my email address is only
in uploaders field).
Thanks for the hints. Now I understand how to get what I really want
without need to change the impl of developer.php.
