Yep, that is exactly as set in my debian-i386 boy :).

:-rwxr-sr-x root/mail    556632 1998-03-18 21:02 usr/bin/elm
:As it is in the alpha deb. (dpkg -c works on foreign debs)

Noted... the transcript below is from my "reinstallation" of 

prata:~[501]#ls -l `which elm`
-rwxr-sr-x   1 root     mail       556632 Mar 19 04:02 /usr/bin/elm*

Does that suggest problem with dpkg-alpha??

:No you can't; that will show your name.  non-i386 uploaders do not and
:should not change the Maintainer field of a package in debian/control.

I just cc to the alpha list... hopefully, I do not annoy anybody :P
