Re: Do not make gratuitous source uploads just to provoke the buildds!

That's not to say that a request to prioritize a package is to be

those who want their packages to be built. The former are expected to be
following the larger picture; the latter are not.

The latter, however, also know a good deal more about the particular details of the upload. It'd seem to at least make sense to use critical/medium/low as part of the sort criteria, for example before alphabetical. Maybe even ahead of standard/optional/extra.
