I thought we established the last time around on this discussion that Adam
needs to leave the comma off in his name for the time being. DAK is also
misinterpreting the value, so it's not just a Lintian problem. All our
current tools assume they can do a naive split on comma, and even if we
decided to change this and changed Policy now, it's going to take a while
for the tools to change.
