i agree, maintainership should be done manually. but preferably with some kind 
of package search and checkboxes, to select multiple ones. (to minimize the 
work; i can't see jq finding package by package and selecting himself for it)

sophie already keeps packager data, afaik.

if the work with searching package and checkboxes is too much work at this 
time, perhaps we could enable "that autosetting code" for a short while so 
that most are set.
