The primary reason I've seen expressed for desire to be added to the
Uploaders field is so that the sponsor can get a quick summary of a
sponsored package's state from the excellent developer.php script on
qa.debian.org. I've noticed that being able to do a "subscription" in
developer.php is a requested feature, but I can't see a way to do that yet.
