In my point of view, maintainer field just need to be change when
Ubuntu does a non-trivial change on it. Otherwise, at least to me, is
OK to leave the maintainer field unchanged. Directly imported source
(that will be just recompiled by Ubuntu) doesn't need to be change
since it's the same source code that runs on Debian.
