I want to add a thought: If you have set the MAINTAINER to,
it seems that you don't want to care about the package.  So... why have you
provided it in the first term?

Adding new packages just "to have more" is, IMO, bad, because most of them
won't have maintainers and will easily become obsolete, buggy or whatever.
