What is the purpose of this? If the package is well 
maintained I think it's really 
questionable that an inactive co-maintainer justifies a 
source upload just because his name is in the control file 
(like for example in #455011). 
I also don't think that an inactive co-maintainer should be 
a justification to stop a package to migrate to testing. 
What is the rationale here?

Kind regards
