I don't believe this package should be NMUed (other than for a technical RC
bug or such).  On the other hand, marking it as a "Team upload" would be
very appropriate.

I'm not aware whether the Debian-Publicity team keeps a formal list of
members, but if there's one, you may consider getting onto it.  Many teams
use Salsa permissions as a technical implementation of such a list.

(Responding with a -mentors hat on, I'm not involved in any way with the
Publicity team.  Heck, I'm the kind of guy whose workmates don't let talk
to any customers. :p)

Larjona: IIRC because of a prior issue when someone was both a DM and a DN,
and some tool not being able to handle a person being in two keyrings, DAK
got hacked to make DN imply DM rights.  Thus, if I'm correct, there's no
need to implement any special handling.  So you have no excuse for not
updating the package as often as you'd like.  :)

With so many contributors to the package, it's definitely not something for
a random sponsor to review/upload.  Thus, a RFS for it should go through
some other channels.
