There are Debian Developers who do not maintain packages. They run buildd's, help with documentation, and perform other infrastructural tasks. IIRC, Jason Gunthorpe for a *long* time did not have his name in the "Maintainer" field of any package. Yet he's a Debian Admin and sits on the Technical Committee. I hope your grep command could manage to measure his contribution in the event he hadn't decided to bite the bullet and put his name in apt's control data. -- G.
