The .changes file says:

  Maintainer: bridgett@debian.org
  Changed-By: Andreas Metzler <ametzler@downhill.at.eu.org>

Your sponsor can solve this by using the -k flag to dpkg-buildpackage
rather than -m. Some documentation recommends using -m, but this only
results in katie thinking the upload is an NMU, as you've noticed.
