Yup. I guess the "informal way" can be described pretty much as
"everybody works on each package they feel like working on and puts
themselves into Uploaders to express that they accept some
responsibility for the package". A few packages have de facto "main"
maintainers like you said here ...

... and it makes sense to not interrupt their work too much :)
