Hrm. I can't seem to pick what package you're talking about: the only
package of yours that's picked up as newer in unstable than in testing
is mpsql which still apparently has a serious bug against it (missing
build depends); and the only one in incoming is jftpgw which is in
testing and doesn't appear to have ever had any bugs.

At any rate, in theory all you need to do is upload a fixed package to
unstable, and it'll work its way into testing reasonably quickly.

Fixed means closing all the RC bugs against it, and making sure it builds
on all architectures, and doesn't introduce new bugs, etc.
