Is there a special "format" or syntax which one should use when sending
mail to this address (i.e. is this done automagically by a script or read
by you)?

I took a few packages where I won't release new versions soon, so the
maintainer field needs to be overwritten.

BTW, ist your override file downloadable somewhere (via ftp.debian.org or
master)? I want to use the master-override when I rebuild my Package
