Re: DELAYED queue on gluck operative

The uploader can, I can. (And root@gluck can.)
This is because the directories are owned by me (so that the script
run as me, from cron can move the files), but they are sticky, which
means the owner of the file can remove it.
This is consistent with how DELAYED worked before, FWIW.
If you want to invalidate an NMU: upload a newer version.
