Uh, and you figure making people mail the BTS specially for each new
package uploaded (instead of adding a Closes line to the changelog),
and filing, what, a dozen new bugs against ftp.debian.org every week is
something other than harassment [0]?

It's a NEW package (ie, one not currently in unstable or experimental),
and'll be treated the same way NEW ones are across the board. It's not
really that complicated.

Why, btw, are you uploading a NEW package with the maintainer set to -qa,
especially when -qa has already asked for the package to be removed from
the distro? That's usually considered somewhat irresponsible.
