Suppose I do a bug fix in both frozen and unstable.  What's the
preferred tactic in that case?

Upload source-only and libc5 version, wait until that has been processed,
then upload libc6?

[Warning - question from ignorance]

On a system which has both libc5 and libc6 installed, I assume that
some options are needed to select libc5.  Where do these go?

Or do I need a second machine?
