The original request to us was made by Paul Tagliamonte, who I don't
think is on the d-i team (or if he is I hope he'll forgive me for
observing he isn't very active).
The only people who might reasonably be described as vaguely current
maintainers of parts of d-i whom I can immediately find on a quick scan
of the early parts of this bug are Wouter and myself; Tollef also
contributed a good deal in the past, and I may have missed one or two.
But I don't think any of these people have been acting as d-i
maintainers here. People like Cyril and Christian, who would be more
obvious candidates for such a label, have not commented on this bug.
I would have thought that this is more clearly handled under 6.1(2)
("Decide any technical matter where Developers' jurisdictions overlap").
