No, in general the one sponsoring the upload will create and push the tag.

I looked at your package but I'm not familiar with the emacs integration thing.
I saw that you have a lintian warning about this:

W: ccrypt: emacsen-common-without-dh-elpa
N:   The package uses the emacsen-common infrastructure but the package was
N:   not built with dh-elpa. Please consider transitioning the package
N:   build to use dh-elpa, unless the package is required to work with
N:   XEmacs.
N:   dh-elpa centralises the emacsen-common maintscripts, which makes for
N:   fewer bugs, and significantly easier cross-archive updates to emacsen
N:   packages.
N:   In addition, a package built with dh-elpa integrates with the GNU
N:   Emacs package manager, for a better user experience.
N:   Refer to the dh_elpa(1) manual page, the dh-make-elpa(1) manual page,
N:   and https://pkg-emacsen.alioth.debian.org/ for details.
N:   Severity: normal, Certainty: certain
N:   Check: elpa, Type: binary

Is there a reason for you to not use dh-elpa? If yes, then please override
the lintian tag and document the reason as a comment in the lintian override

If there is no reason, please consider using it.

I saw a bunch of other minor problems reported by lintian (with -I to have
informational tags too):

I: ccrypt source: testsuite-autopkgtest-missing

It's OK to not have such tests but here it would likely be not too hard to
write a few tests and I invite you to consider writing some.

I: ccrypt: hardening-no-bindnow usr/bin/ccguess
I: ccrypt: hardening-no-bindnow usr/bin/ccrypt

This can be fixed with "export DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS = hardening=+all" in 

I: ccrypt: spelling-error-in-manpage usr/share/man/man1/ccrypt.1.gz contructed 

Simple typo.
