Many of us take quite some satisfaction from seeing their packaging
work affect so many more individuals that are using that downstream
distro. They are users of our packages and as the package maintainer
one cares about them, too.
Another idea is to have more and more downstream developers
become maintainers also for Debian. And then the PTS and other bits
of our infrastructure should not let them miss too much, especially
not the bugs submitted from their "own" userbase.
