I actually had read that (although it was non-trivial to reach). 
However, this document assumes you already are a maintainer with access 
to the repository and build systems.  What I was interested in finding 
was some documentation that told me, a newbie (even if I had had 
permissions before), how to do a package update and submit it for review.

Or: just consider a regular user that has never contributed any new 
package but wants to send an update for an existing one.  What 
information would be suitable to them?

Not sure.  My account is marked as active and I have changed both my 
password and SSH keys (yesterday).
