As far as I know, the 'uploaders' group allows you to upload packages
at all. That only means new packages, unless you're in the
'maintainers' group for a package.

People in the 'maintainers' group for a package can also edit metadata
like deprecation, and I guess they can also edit the maintainers list.

People in the trustees group can edit the maintainers lists for all
packages, and upload all packages. They're package-admins, so to

People in the admins group can add accounts, edit group membership, etc.

That is how I understand it. Hope that helps,
