The default dupload target for debian is described this way in

$cfg{'ftp-master'} = {
    fqdn => '',
    method => 'scpb',
    incoming => '/srv/',
    distblacklist => qr/^(?:UNRELEASED|.*-security$)/,
    # Files pass on to dinstall on ftp-master which sends emails itself.
    dinstall_runs => 1,

According to Paride above, DMs cannot use this useful queue because
debian doesn't know about their ssh keys.

Please enable scpb access to for Debian
Maintainers based on ssh keys that we know about for them -- either by
pulling them from salsa, from monkeysphere, or some other mechanism.

Thanks for maintaining the debian upload queues!
