By combination of mailing list notification and polling. Here's an
example with the recent update to newer upstream versions. (with a bit
of humour that is intended to actually be a credit)
- - Gregor prepares a heap of updated packages and posts a message to the
- - Various DDs pick some packages by whatever order they wish, upload
them and remove them from packages-pending
- - (a) remembering that there were more packages to upload, DDs look
later and pick some other packages, upload and remove from -pending.
Rinse and repeat until no packages remain in -pending
- - or, (b) Gregor sends reminder about the remaining packages in
- -pending. Repeat until there are none.

That "svn cp" could be provided by some script in scripts/
The problem with ML-only variant that *I* have is that I can't easily
tell what packages still need uploading. I have to compare several mails
and this can easily go wrong. (not that it would be fatal, but still)
Perhaps we can give that a try without too much trouble?
