You could always add a PGP user id of "John C. Travers
<travs@debian.org>" (or whatever your Debian email is) to your key,
using pgp -ke, and send it to keyring-maint@debian.org.  Then make
sure your debian/changelog entry ends with the @debian.org address,
and use that in the control file as well.  In that way, even if all of
your other email addresses change in the process, your debian one will
remain as long as you are with the project.
