I'm not really sure this is right:
% grep-aptavail -FMaintainer,Uploaders 
debian-multimedia at -sPackage | wc -l

I tried to maintain the csound package within the debian-multimedia team, but 
it seemed pretty much dead, which is why I moved out.
OTOH, if what you say is right, maybe I tried in the wrong place.
