In general if you're using something that's very much out of sync with
how most of the developers of a platform build packages for it (and fpm
is *wildly* out of sync with what Debian and Ubuntu developers do),
you're going to be on your own to some extent.  It seems to
intentionally bypass lots of the standard tools so we really can't
guarantee that it will work with Launchpad at all.

I guess you need to figure out where fpm gets the maintainer field that
it substitutes into its template changelog and ensure that that's in the
"Name <email@address.example>" form.
