I've seen that current consensus seems to use another directory for that
but I don't see the point of another directory. I think that by
"maintainership" Ivo only means that he wants his name in the Maintainer
field. He probably doesn't matter if other people help him maintain the
package ? Am I right Ivo ?

So IMO, he can keep his name in the Maintainer field and still use the
same directory in the repository. BTW, I'll probably do this for my
perl packages.
