I hope you are the right person for this as your name appears in the
changelog for the adobe-flashplugin package.
The adobe-flashplugin package that can be downloaded directly from
www.adobe.com lists the Ubuntu MOTU mailing list as Maintainer which is
clearly wrong and also causes confusion:
| Package: adobe-flashplugin
| Version: 10.0.32.18-1
| Architecture: i386
| Maintainer: Ubuntu MOTU Developers <ubuntu-motu at lists.ubuntu.com>
| Original-Maintainer: DL-Flash Player Ubuntu <FlashPlayerUbuntu at adobe.com>
Would it be possible to get MOTU removed from the Maintainer field for
The adobe-flashplugin available from the partner archive doesn't have
this problem, only the one from www.adobe.com.
Perhaps it would be even better to point to the partner archive instead
of offering a deb download at www.adobe.com. That way users will get
updated packages once they are available in the partner archive.
