The urgency field has no effect for frozen packages like
gcc-3.4. The package will not propagate to sarge automatically no matter
whether it is 3 days old with urgency=low or 33 days old with
Frozen packages go from sid to sarge exactly when (if) they are forced
in by the release managers. (The release managers might /choose/ not to
hint young urgency=low packages into sarge but that is a deliberate
Even for non-frozen packages, please do not suggest "reupload unchanged
with urgency=high" if the uploader chose a wrong urgency originally, the
release managers can simply override the urgency of the specific upload
if you ask them to, therefore sparing our buildds useless stress.
