As to the main question of this thread I agree that the signature line
should be a real person.

On a related note however, I do not see the point of the “Team upload”
line (and do not use it in the Haskell Team uploads). It does not log a
change, I can ignore the lintian warnings manually, and if it were a
real NMU, the version number would indicate that. I hope nobody minds,
and I don’t mind if people prefer to add “Team upload” for clarity.
