Well, not necessarily. You have an alioth account, and even if it gets
dropped you can have a -guest alioth account. With that you can
work/commit in our repository.

At that point the policy would be fair with everyone: the last nth
people who worked on a package will be listed. It's just up to you to
decide whether you want to work on which packages or not.

Uhm, why so? The Uploaders information is in the Sources file, and it's
just a matter of uploading the correct debian/control. It seems to me
that the Gnome guys are using a control.in (as we do in some OCaml
packages), it's just a matter of relying upon it ... (I understand it
can be a nuisance though).
