I do not understand this: what do you mean?

I don't like automatic system without possibility to have human overide.
I want to be able to upload packages in unstable also if there are errors on some architectures, but only on very EXCEPTIONAL cases.

OT: In testing happens that a packages will not uploaded in testing because package is "buggier", but often the it is buggier because it is in unstable for a long time. You could not tell (AFAIK) that a bug was also present in the old testing version, but passed unnoticed.

For this reason, I would like that smarted people (vs "stupid" script [Stupid from KISS definition]) can eventualy overide/upload packages in unstable. Surelly we need a strict policy about when and how it is allowed.
