I think that if something is decided to be left out, it should be
Packager, since maintainer changes are tracked in svn, and whoever
imports it should be responsible for the port even if it's copied from
someone else (this should probably be mentioned in the initial commit
message). Adding multiple contributor fields doesn't sound very good.
