arts lists a mailing list as uploader in the changelog. The policy

| 4.4 Debian changelog: debian/changelog
| The maintainer name and email address used in the changelog should be
| the details of the person uploading this version. They are not
| necessarily those of the usual package maintainer. The information here
| will be copied to the Changed-By field in the .changes file (see
| Changed-By, Section 5.6.4), and then later used to send an
| acknowledgement when the upload has been installed.


| 5.6.4 Changed-By
| The name and email address of the person who changed the said package.
| Usually the name of the maintainer. All the rules for the Maintainer
| field apply here, too.

A mailing list is no person which can do uploads.
