You were appointed indirectly by the package maintainers that I

Every GNU package has maintainers appointed by the GNU Project.  They
are in charge of the work on that package and responsible to the GNU
Project.  The maintainers of GNU libc are the people on the
steering committee.

The maintainers of a package can do the work alone -- that is the
usual case -- but with the maintainers of some packages delegate some
of the work to other developers that they appoint.  The package
maintainers can delegate responsibility but they cannot cede it.

Apparently an unfortunate miscommunication happened in your case.
