[pkg-ggz-maintainers] Some packaging discussion

the following items are currently floating around in my head:

* maintainer e-mail
Should this be set to this list or should my own address be kept in there?

* API docs
We have several doxygen files with the libraries and usually generate HTML and 
PDF files from them manually for inclusion with the web pages.
In order to install them as part of ggz-docs, what could be done?
- copy generated files to ggz-docs tarball upstream (blows it up in size)
- somehow integrate it into the binary package build system (difficult)
Are there packages which do something like this?

* parallel uploads
To speed up the uploading, I suggest pairing the gtk+ and kde -client and 
-game packages. If there are errors, they're likely in both of them for each 

* packaging graph
In playground/maintenance/, there's a debian-depgraph.sh which creates a nice 
PS/PNG file showing the current GGZ packages and their dependencies. It's 
already quite complex ;)
Somehow apt-cache dotty should be taught about ignoring transitive 
dependencies so the resulting image will look less scary.
