Yep. Ftpmasters are usually happy if you provide some help in ranking

I'm absolutely aware of this since I have probably had my fingers in
about 99% of our packages. But before routine-update the "surprise"
about not so routine-tasks was the same. Just the real routine is
simplified. Also autopkgtests are reducing the routine-fun. The
example of mapdamage (see my other mail) shows: If you really look at
the tests than something might stop you from uploading. But its good
for the final user experience.

Considering that someone needs to do the work it helps if at least
the routine tasks are simple.

You can try to send another ranking to ftpmaster.
