Good work, Loic and Chris!  Have a beer! :-)

I'll do whatever is on my diff list this evening insofar no one else has
jumped in yet.  I gather that for RECOMPILES you're using the .0.1
extension to the version number? That makes sense (I remember something
from debian-devel that .0.1 should indicate a recompile-only upload).

Just to reiterate one of my pet peeves: If you're uploading something
of which the source was uploaded BEFORE the freeze, DO NOT FORGET TO FIX
THE CHANGELOG so that it says "frozen unstable".  A couple of my uploads
(to frozen unstable) were rejected because that version number was
already in unstable a.k.a. potato... Reuploading with a hacked changes
file that only said "frozen" fixed that, but it's a complete waste of
my time if the upload was done already...

Especially now we're recompiling stuff, perhaps from before the freeze,
this is doubly important!
