+# The design of debug-me's keyring support forces us to use different
+# strings to identify members of debian-keyring.gpg and
+# debian-nonupload.gpg. We want to minimise mention of the somewhat
+# obscure distinction between uploading and non-uploading DDs, so we
+# have a choice of the pair
+# ("a Debian Developer", "a Debian Developer, non-uploading")
+# or the pair
+# ("a Debian Developer, uploading", "a Debian Developer").
+# Since debug-me debuggers are more likely to be uploading DDs, I've
+# chosen the former. I've included this note just to clarify that the
+# intent is not to downgrade the status of non-uploading DDs.
