Bug#870876: tracker.debian.org: make subscription easier to upstreams with many packages

Package: tracker.debian.org
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainers,
some time ago one particular upstream for several Perl modules
asked me if there's a way to easily subscribe to all packages
related to them automatically, i.e. an opt-in subscription for
upstreams that they could just check on or off and if a new
package appears and they're the upstream, then tracker would
automatically subscribe them to that package.

Most pkg-perl packages have a debian/upstream/metadata that
could be used to obtain the upstream author, but I guess it
could be fetched from metacpan also. That could work for other
upstream distribution systems like pypi, rubygems, npm, etc.
