Blockade is one of the packages I created during the NM process.
I cannot upload anything yet, so Marc (my AM) did the upload,
too. We have (the one uploading == the maintainer) here.

Seems that "NMU" is pretty misleading. IMHO it should be called
"non-maintainer change" (NMC). For the bts it should not matter
who did the change (i.e. who is mentioned in changelog). My
suggestion would be to look at the identity of the person running
dput or similar. If this is the maintainer, then the bug could be
closed immediately without setting it to "fixed and pending".

Hopefully this was not a big problem? Or should I send another
EMail to the bts?
