Please consider refraining to post comments like this in the
future. Your intention might have been good, but written as you wrote
it, it can discourage non-DDs to maintain packages.

We have sponsorship in place exactly because we (unless proven
otherwise) want also non-DDs to maintain packages, of course with
mentoring and review in place before uploading.

Also, the Debian Project endorsed the notion of Debian Maintainer [1]
which, again, show our support to non-DDs maintaining packages
(sometime for the interim before becoming DDs, sometime not).
