Bug#556217: DDPO does not show sponsored uploads

Package: qa.debian.org
Severity: normal
Usertags: ddpo

One of my packages has been adopted by a new maintainer and I am the

If you look at my packages[1] and hover the mouse over the recent upload
of gnade (=1.6.2-3), the tooltip text says "1 week ago by Stephen Leake
<stephen_leake@stephe-leake.org> (Uploader: Stephen Leake
<stephen_leake@stephe-leake.org>)", i.e. it thinks the maintainer and
uploader are the same.  This is wrong; I am the uploader.  The control
file contains:

Maintainer: Stephen Leake <stephen_leake@stephe-leake.org>
Uploaders: Ludovic Brenta <lbrenta@debian.org>

and I did the upload, signed by my key (lbrenta@debian.org).  Stephen is
neither a DD nor a DM, so cannot possibly be the uploader.

Another package, polyorb, shows the same problem with another
maintainer[3].  Because this is a new package (as opposed to an adopted
package), it does not appear on my DDPO page at all.

FWIW, both packages that expose the problem (gnade and polyorb) are
still in the NEW queue.

Consequences of this problem:

- there is no Sponsored Uploads section on my page
- when gnade is through the NEW queue, it will disappear from my page
  (polyorb is already absent from it)
- I cannot easily track the packages I sponsor
- I get no credit for sponsoring :)
