When sbuild is behaving like a maintainer or sponsor (as opposed to behaving
like a buildd) make sure you leave $maintainer_name and $uploader_name unset,
assuming your sbuild is recent.
In older versions of sbuild, which insisted on having at least one of
$maintainer_name, $uploader_name or $key_id, it was necessary to
set $key_id, and also set $pgp_options so that $key_id wasn't used (assuming
you want to test the package before signing it): see
That page also indicates how to check the .changes file for a sponsored upload
to check that the right things happened.
