Hello Valerio
Thanks for your mail.

Maybe that link should pint to https://nm.debian.org/public/people/dm_all

And maybe remove that "together with the packages they maintain", and
add another sentence X, pointing to www.debian.org/devel/people. X being
an accurate description of... what we gather and save in

And what do we gather and save in people.names?

our cron scripts point to

echo "re-creating people.names file..."
./people.pl data/*/*.Packages* data/*.Sources* > people.names.new

and people.pl script  is here

Being the first time I see the script, I'll stop here for now, hopefully
some other friend that knows the script better can explain or update or fix.

If not, I'll try to put some time on this next week.

Best regards
Laura Arjona Reina
