Team uploads.

Dear all,

It was proposed in 2009 to formalise "Team uploads" in analogy to the "QA
uploads", as a special case of NMU, where most conventions are relaxed.


While there was interest, the discussion eventually ended with no action.

In the context of the Debian Med packaging team, I have started to make “Team
uploads”, for packages that are maintained by my team but for which I do not
want to add myself in the Uploaders field.

For these NMUs, I apply the following exceptions:

 - Normal incementation of version number,
 - no delay,
 - no patch to the BTS, but a direct commit to our repository,
 - start the changelog by a “Team upload.” entry.

This triggers Lintian warnings, that I ignore. The attached untested patch
may solve the problem.

If others are interested to follow the same approach, I propose to use the following
wiki page to draft a common reference: http://wiki.debian.org/TeamUpload.

Have a nice sunday,
