Output of my first ever upload to Debian (using dput):
Trying to upload package to ftp-master (ftp.upload.debian.org) Checking signature on .changes gpg: Signature made Sun 13 Oct 2013 09:21:35 SAST using RSA key ID 500BF4A2 gpg: Good signature from "Tshepang Lekhonkhobe <firstname.lastname@example.org>" Good signature on ../wajig_2.10_amd64.changes.

Uploading wajig_2.10_amd64.changes: done. Successfully uploaded packages.
And, yeah, that means I am now Debian Maintainer. Other than giving me more freedom, this helps reduce the workload on Dirk Eddelbuettel, who has been uploading wajig for several years now. He even became an Advocate for my application. This process started several weeks ago when a Debian Developer named Tristan Seligmann signed my key (before applying to be a Maintainer, a Debian Developer needs to sign your key as a way of verifying your identity).
