Once your GPG key is in the Debian Maintainer keyring, then you can
authorized to upload packages directly yourself for identified

This is done through a special field named DM-Upload-Allowed (written
from memmory, I'm not online right now to check the exact syntax) in
the debian/control file.

If this field is set to "yes" and you are in the Maintainer field,
then youc an upload this package (and not another one).

short, the DD who takes responsibility to upload a package with
DM-Upload-Allowed is indeed saying "I trust this person to be the
maintainer of that package in Debian and do further uploads
