To find out who are the owners of a package there's the

If I wanted to know whether a specific user is owner of the given
package, am I expected to retrieve the group information and check
whether the user is member of each group? Is there maybe a better suited
call that would do that for me on server side?

not yet, we could add some expand option which is including also the groups
of a user if wanted.

However, I am not sure if that is really the best way for your problem.
Let's talk about what you want to do exactly....

The use case is one of the maintenance review bots that checks if the
package was submitted or reviewed by one of the package owners.

And why is that important for the bot?

I mean, if this is not the case, there will be an extra review in the
request for the package owners. So isn't this already handled inside of OBS?

In case of Factory this is handled by OBS via the devel project
mechanism, yes. For maintenance incident requests however there are no
devel projects and maintainers are not defined in the involved projects.
So submissions there could bypass package owners.
