This kind of ruins the point, that packages can be effectively uploaded
before their packager is a debian-Maintaner.  Also, I thought the problems
getting new maintainers in was of time and not of quality of the applicants.

Can I suggest that this is what debian-mentors is meant for?  (And if not,
that a new list should be made.)

I just checked on my naim package, and noticed that the uploaded copy
dissapeared.  Please, can sombody check out
http://www.rtweb.net/theorb/debian/, containing naim-0.9.5-recon2-2 (a
client for AOL's Instant Messenger (TM) service, the full binary and source
packages are there).
