No, not at all. The packages are group maintained - If there is any
kind of issue in packages you have uploaded as our group's and you go
away, I can perfectly work on them, independently if whether they are
RC bugs or what. I am expected to upload new versions, to keep track
of lesser bugs, etc. _And_ NMUs are not in our SVN repository - only
proper maintainer uploads are tracked there. Of course, NMUs can be
added, but I have so far not seen them.

Great! I'm adding the group then to the Wiki page; of course, if
needed, it can be removed.
