Subject: DDPO does not show sponsored uploads
Date: Sat, 14 Nov 2009 13:17:18 +0100
Package: qa.debian.org
Severity: normal
Usertags: ddpo

One of my packages has been adopted by a new maintainer and I am the
sponsor.

If you look at my packages[1] and hover the mouse over the recent upload
of gnade (=1.6.2-3), the tooltip text says "1 week ago by Stephen Leake
<stephen_leake@stephe-leake.org> (Uploader: Stephen Leake
<stephen_leake@stephe-leake.org>)", i.e. it thinks the maintainer and
uploader are the same.  This is wrong; I am the uploader.  The control
file contains:

Maintainer: Stephen Leake <stephen_leake@stephe-leake.org>
Uploaders: Ludovic Brenta <lbrenta@debian.org>

and I did the upload, signed by my key (lbrenta@debian.org).  Stephen is
neither a DD nor a DM, so cannot possibly be the uploader.

Another package, polyorb, shows the same problem with another
maintainer[3].  Because this is a new package (as opposed to an adopted
package), it does not appear on my DDPO page at all.

The unofficial debian-mentors FAQ[2] specifically warns against passing
-e or -m to dpkg-buildpackage or debuild, so I didn't.  Was that a
mistake?

[2] http://people.debian.org/~mpalmer/debian-mentors_FAQ.html
[3] http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=reet%40codelabs.ch

FWIW, both packages that expose the problem (gnade and polyorb) are
still in the NEW queue.

Consequences of this problem:

- there is no Sponsored Uploads section on my page
- when gnade is through the NEW queue, it will disappear from my page
  (polyorb is already absent from it)
- I cannot easily track the packages I sponsor
- I get no credit for sponsoring :)

Did you mean the problem was on the link to the NEW package? In that
case, the information from there might have been incorrect.
(I believe there is no such error in the packages from the main archive.)

These options are evil, and will overwrite fields in the generated
.changes/.dsc/.deb files. Personally, I use dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
and then manually sign with debsign.
