Unfortunately the BTS isn't really in a position to know about
Uploaders: fields at the moment. If you follow the link to the PTS
you'll see a "Co-Maintainers" entry, though.

I certainly don't like having that many open bugs, but since the package
is being actively uploaded it would probably be more helpful if you
could help triage them rather than asking about the package's
maintenance ... Darren Tucker (part of OpenSSH upstream) is doing that
and it's very useful.

Also, openssh is one of those packages that tends to attract a lot of
upstream bugs which aren't realistically fixable in Debian as well as
bugs that basically can't or won't be fixed, and it's inherently rather
complex too. Still, the overall bug count was more like 280 this time
last year.

Darren said that it was fixed upstream in
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=164797&msg=13, although
I admit I wasn't very clear about why I tagged it pending. I think we
probably need a 'fixed-upstream' tag or similar now that pending is more
explicitly reserved for "upload will happen soon".
