I agree. I think the recently restated way of interpreting those two fields made the most sense to me, and gives team members the choice of how to handle those packages. * Team in Maintainers is a strong statement that fully collaborative maintenance is preferred. Anyone can commit to the vcs and upload as needed. A courtesy email to Uploaders can be nice but not required. * Team in Uploaders is a weak statement of collaboration. Help in maintaining the package is appreciated, commits to vcs are freely welcomed, but before uploading, please contact the Maintainer for the green light. Cheers, -Barry
