Well, the whole point of being a DM is that they are trusted to care for
the package.  The practical case here is Miriam, and I certainly trust
her to upload only proper packages (and not just whatever happens to
have been added by anyone to svn).

But it might be good if Miriam would request the addition herself.

I didn't actually check, and would expect lintian to be updated by now
indeed, perhaps it was back then as well. :-)

Yes, I wasn't suggesting to change the upload, I just wanted to make
sure the things I found weren't forgotten.

There is one thing I would like to know from anyone who knows, and
that's the lintian override.  I'll quote my original question:
