This is how the current gnome-pkg-tools rules behave; the Uploaders
field will list the intersection of the team and recent uploaders
(looking at the changelog) of the package. Other features are that the
team's ML is also always added to Uploaders: and the Maintainer: is
always filtered out of Uploaders.
This was done in March, so only packages built against gnome-pkg-tools
0.11 or later will get such uploaders.
