Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: ubuntu-dev-tools

$ update-maintainer: Error: No Maintainer field found in

Test case:
1. Download source of seahorse-plugins;
2. Run update-maintainer

BTW. update-maintainer should touch both control and control.in since
debuild couldn't build source if control is not updated.

** Affects: ubuntu-dev-tools (Ubuntu)
