That's right.

Usually.  It saves other people work if you can do them yourself,

Please remove the uploads that you know will fail; that way you can
make sure the source upload is the one that gets in.   As it is, one of
them will be selected at almost random, and then the all.deb will
disappear, and all the others will fail...

Or just edit and resign the .changes files - remove the _all.deb, and
"all" from the Architecture: line.
