this is not a binNMU (which is irrelevant here), nor a NMU (even
though lintian warned it was), nor my packages are in lowNMU list (so,
again, irrelevant), it is indeed maintained in the DPMT, which has a
set of rules called policy. are you asserting that it's perfectly fine
to ignore the policy which should bind our work in this team?

what? so $random_developer arrives, changes the packages, does
mistakes, uploads nonetheless, I should happily fix them, and then let
them know what was wrong? so why shouldnt that very same
$random_developer get in touch with the maintainer who has done the
work so far?

nor is uploading a package just for their own interest and then let
the maintainer fix the mistakes done. This has happened in the past,
most of the times with Thomas, that's enough.

I dont think you can assert what others' intentions are (even if good
faith *can* be assumed), still shielding behind the "team maintenance"
to do whatever one pleases is WRONG! stop being apologetic for such
