I just uploaded a package to mentors.debian.net twice - I used -sa to
force inclusion of the source for the first upload, then I made some
changes (after realizing I needed to), and uploaded again without the
source included. I didn't change the version between uploads
(contrary to this discussion), but I'm guessing the site would still
handle it properly even if I did.
