  Do you plan on filing bugs to prevent loosing track of the remaining
  uploads? Perhaps some other methods (wiki page, private list of
  yourself) would be less intrusive, but bugs is what we normally use
  for this issues.


    - file bugs against all packages right after upload. Easier,
      pollutes BTS.

    - file bugs against remaining packages after e.g. 2 or 4 weeks. A
      bit more of effort, won't create a flood of RC bugs (hopefully).

Don't worry about what anybody else is going to do. The best way to
predict the future is to invent it.
