There was supposed to be a new program run on master which would scan
incoming every 15 minutes or so. When it found newly uploaded packages
which passed simple sanity tests it would do the announcement. So, new
packages would be announced right away as before, but we'd still be able
to separate out source-only and architecture-specific announcement lists
and the like. There might be more details in the "new upload procedure"
bug assigned to ftp.debian.org.
