  I see your point, but see mine: I run svn update, see something has
changed, and the only name mentioned in the changelog is mine ;-)...
Rather unsettling !

  I might be wrong, but maybe, if you don't want to be listed as an
Uploader, then the way to go is NMU-style, even though that admittedly
sounds weird within a team. What are the other's opinion about that ??

  I pay close attention to mails in debian-ruby and
pkg-ruby-extra-maintainers, but I seldom look at the commit logs, since
there is way less information there. Being more visible seldom hurts ;-)...
