[csw-maintainers] Non-Maintainer Uploads (NMUs)

Well, I think I already expressed my opinion here:
But to recap: I am for promoting team for package maintenance, rather than
replacing the notion of maintainers with uploaders, and I am for allowing
uploads by non maintainers (or non member of a maintenance team) who don't
want to take over maintenance.

In our case, unfortunately I am not sure we can create a lot of teams but
we may create at least one core team to maintain some important base
packages and one for dealing with orphaned packages in best effort mode.

But I would like to hear the opinion of other people as it is an important
change, maybe a subject for the summer camp.
