I am not sure. Especially if the modifying is actually done before, in
the repo, reviewed by the team, maybe semi-automated across the packages
and all they are doing then is to manually build the packages in the
right order and upload them – I don’t see why a DM should be less
entitled to do so, or why we would want to have only DDs spend their
time on this tedious task.

(BTW, source only uploads anyone? Then I can easily do the uploads on my
own and need neither the DDs nor the DMs in my team to do what computers
can do better.)
