Unless the package is signed by a debian developer, it will not be
processed and removed from incoming automatically (or better from the upload
queue, AFAIR you need access to a certain machine to upload to "Incoming"

I only find it disturbing, that Ingo is the only active m68k developer who
is reading this list, and although the fellow maintainers were told often
enough to ask questions like this on another list, they still send it to
this one. One day, they will not get answers anymore, since nobody (but
Ingo) bothers and they will think, oh, m68k is dead. Good, lets close all
those bugs.
