Same here. I have a few packages in DPMT and PAPT because I think it
improves the overall quality of Debian packages if they are centrally

Having centralised infrastructure and policy makes it much easier to
fix things across many packages (e.g. helper package migrations or
updating the (XS-)Vcs-* fields).

I can't say I contribute regularly to other package in either of the
repositories but once in a while I do have time to do QA-like work on a
few packages that are team maintained.

In short, I don't see why I am considered a problem for the team. I'm
not saying I'm a hugely positive addition but removing my packages
because I don't contribute much to other packages will not motivate me
to do more and will probably have the opposite effect for when I do
have some time to spare.
