Real situation: by mistake package was uploaded with Architecture: any, when
should be Architecture: all. Solution: upload package with correct
Architecture field. No other actions was required.

You can always use the experimental distribution.
First, you can test if package required additional action from archive
Second, experimental and unstable share override file. You can upload
package to experimental, wait for approve - if needed, then upload it
to unstable with instant result.
