OK; however I do not completely understand why thid is the case.

Not really: Sure, some information should be taken from the NEW
queue (like the WNPP bug number). But for example it would be useful to
have the RCS URL available for packages in NEW. Also the version number
from RCS would be useful. The upstream/metadata are taken from there
anyway yet (right?), but not for NEW packages.

In principle, anything that is not available from the NEW queue entry
could come from RCS for that time.
