 Uploaders mainly is for the archive tools to distinct between NMUs and
MUs. Having people in there that aren't in the keyring might push your
ego, but doesn't really add. In fact it even has another sideeffect
coming to effect with the DM implementation, so putting one into
Uploaders shouldn't be just done and not without concensus with the

 Saying that, you are still evading answering questions about the
quality approach of yours. Additionally, reading #448956 I'm not too
sure if you really understand what you did. If you want to file multiple
bugreports, please do so and don't put different issues in the same one.
Additionally, why did you request to add dh_iconcache when this makes no
sense at all in Debian because it just doesn't have it?

 You are as much part of the team as you were before. You just don't
have direct commit access anymore. Being part of the team means though
that one does read the team lists and responds to questions brought up
there. Ignoring them won't get you your commit access back.
