Yes, I can do that, but I think that I cannot upload unfortunately --
the first time a Developer has to sponsor the package, DMs are not
allowed to change Maintainers/Uploaders and so on initially, if I am
not mistaken.

So I was expecting {Christian,Axel,...} to sponsor it for us
initially, if they're comfortable with that.
