Since the field in question is "Upstream-Contact" only Austin should be
mentioned there now. Dan is still listed prominently in another section
of d/copyright.

Great! I only checked older (unsigned) tags.

Joseph, you may also suggest "tor" (for the new torify option in
winetricks that is needed in certain countries that block e.g. archive.org)

All my remarks aren't real blockers for an upload, but trivial to fix. I
can send you a patch if you prefer. I'd be happy to see an updated
winetricks version soon.
