I don't understand completely. At this moment gcc-4.7-source is
available in testing. Does the upload queue nevertheless already know
that gcc-4.7-source is going to be removed?

Why would the package go through the NEW queue? There is still an old
ghdl package in unstable.

I'm probably asking beginners questions. The system of uploading Debian
packages is completely new to me, so I will have to learn some things.
I do understand the inside of Debian source packages though, and I'm
aware of the policy that covers it. But uploading is another matter.

Ok, in that case I will just wait until upstream feels confident that
the GCC 4.8 transition is done.

Thanks for your help,
