source package: dsc + (diff) + orig.tar.gz
binary package: deb
source upload: changes + list of files therein

all to incoming.

twiddle our thumbs?

nah, we turn software into debian packages by debianising them, and
then using dpkg-genchanges to create the changes file. Please read
its manpage, in particular about the -sa, -sd, and -si options to
see which files the changes file will list.

the upload consists of the source package and the binary package,
unless the debian revision is greater than 1, in which case the
orig.tar.gz file is not included.

yes, and as someone else pointed out, this should be urgency. sorry,
i thought you used it elsewhere too.
