What proposal were you reading?  It sure doesn't sound like the one I

"When a package that has been ITP'ed is finally packaged, I'd like to
suggest that it be reassigned to ftp.debian.org."

their intent to package each new package they intend to upload, I
suggest you talk to the WNPP team ASAP.

ITP bugs already exist in the BTS.

Did you read the changelog of the uploaded package?  It appears in the
bug logs of #113360.
