Yeah. There are two issues here:
* the fact that you went ahead and uploaded without an ack: this is in
my opinion perfectly fine, because we failed to get back to you at
all (we try that this doesn't happen too often, but I'm afraid it
really does :/)
* the fact that once a soname-bumping package is uploaded to unstable,
-release must get notified so that we know of its existance; I
thought the need for this was common knowledge, and I may have
sounded a bit too harsh because of that.
