Re: less is somehow in a sour state

So you would want an extra control field "extra-contacts" being a list of emails that would receive the same emails as the maintainer but would have no special privileges with respect to uploading or ownership of the package except possibly to orphan the package in some circumstances. Or perhaps just a "subscribe to this package" button on PTS.

Formally you are right, but I would consider a maintainer as "not really
interested" if he misses the chance to answer this kind of mails.
That's why I come back to my initial proposal: We should try to reach a
state where high popcon packages are maintained by more than one person,
especially if the maintainer does not care about pings like "CCed in
debian-devel mail about problems in his package".

Kind regards
