Nothing. They're simply too busy. And the rest of us can do nothing else
but - wait.

There are now ~200 source packages/versions waiting for acceptance in the
Incoming. Some of those packages don't even need testing and approval -
they're the same packages as some that are already in the archive, that just
changed their name, and one line in the override file has to be modified.

I don't think that another note saying 'your packages will be processed,
please wait' would make anyone feel better :)

Please, FTP admins, hurry up. At least with those uploads that fix
release critical bugs!
