I consider that to be - at least - very unfortunate. I am not maintainer
of any of Ubuntus Packages, and I prefer if Ubuntu wouldn't claim that I
am. If they want to give credit - that's a good idea, but that's
something different than claiming I'm maintainer.

Sadly, there is no mail contact on the launchpad page, so I Cced the
general ubuntu contact to that mail. Perhaps they can fix it.
