For values of "quite a while" less than two weeks, I suppose, since my
latest experience of "Hey, why don't you fix your bugs in Ubuntu?"
ended about two weeks ago with a rebuild of my package (kinoplus, in
that case) which *still* lists me as the maintainer.  Insofar as I can
navigate the Launchpad thingy, I see no mention of "Debian-Maintainer"
or "Original-Maintainer".
