It was me, adding LI to Uploaders. I did this, because he was doing the
main work and nobody complained. Now you complain more than 5(!) months
after this change, which is a little bit unfair, don't you think so? I
mean, you left the package alone for more than a half year (your last
change was done a year ago, or so) and you put gausssum into this
*team-maintained* repository. So what?

Please think about adding comments to a package specific or our general
TODO files to let us know, what we are allowed to do and which things
you don't want us to do. These files contain this information, so we
don't need to chat to each other for everything we want to do. And so
we/you can also leave hints about packaging stuff, non-maintainers of
this package don't know.

Did you observe any issues in the past 5 months that let you feel, that
it wasn't maintained properly?
