i guess that the way andreas did it is correct. use this group as
maintainer, and add your own name/email in the uploaders field. if some
member of the group want's to upload, he/she may do an NMU, or add
his/her name/email to the uploaders field.
if your name is in the uploaders field, you're something like a
co-maintainer, aren't you?

of course you can also add several names/emails to the uploaders field
at once (initial maintainer to group transition) and this way determine
a group of people who are responsible for the package.
