Aah thank you, that is clearer: I thought that it was meaning that it is still
needed to re-iterate the Closes: command.

So if we assume that in the case of “team uploads” the changes would be
commited in the teams repository, as opposed to NMUs were the diff is sent to
the BTS, it would definitely be useful to have the Debian tools to understand
that it is correct that the person signing the changelog is not listed in the
Uploaders: not the Maintainer: field. Would it be wrong to use the “ * QA
upload” special first line, or is it better to reserve it to the QA team ?
