Hi LTS team

In some old version of the contact maintainers script it was sending an
email to $pack...@packages.debian.org
instead of individually to each maintainer.

We got a complaint from one of the maintainer teams that it do this. My
conclusion is that it sends an email to the maintainer and all the
uploaders and obviously the uploader do not always want to be contacted for
a particular package.

The reason why it expands all, including uploaders is that the source of
the package expansion do not distinguish between maintainer and uploader.

So my question to you all is whether there is any particular reason why it
is expanded in this way, or if we should change back to sending an email to

Best regards
