Sorry, I might have worded that wrong.
Let me rephrase that:

Since your package is in pkg-games svn repo (, and since you got your
possible sponsor via a mail on our list); there are more people than you
having write access to it, don't we?

Therefore I think it's in fact a team maintained package, I think it
would be usefull to have pkg-games-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org as the
Maintainer: (so we'll get bug reports and other usefull stuff send to
that list) and you as Uploader: (since you prepared that upload).
However, that it's a question I ask, not a request you must fulfill.

Yours sincerely,
