A lot of folks have pointed this out (including myself in private mail
before these public threads started). AFAICT, Manuel simply
misinterpreted Debian's confusing terminology to mean that he couldn't
put himself in the Maintainer/Uploader fields of packages until he
became a DM/DD (and his sponsor should be in those fields instead). I
think this has been explained to him enough now and would assume he
can understand the situation properly now.
Everyone needs to calm down, use less emotive language and forgive
misunderstandings and miscommunications.
