Not that I have any grounds to question Samuel's skills - I
have seen his name on lists and in bug reports and only remember
But as debian maintainer is "being able to upload (some of) own packages", I
wonder a bit if it is the right thing to place Samuel there.
- I would be surprised if glibc was a package being uploaded by non-DDs
- ports is more about sending patches and occasionally doing porter
- more wondering about d-m in general than wondering about Samuel.
