http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/update_out_code/ is the "official"
current code, afaik. From time to time, there may be other versions
floating around - there's a least one in ~ajt on ftp-master currently.

*_upload@packages.qa.d.o is subscribed to -devel-changes and processes
the mails in real-time. 

http://cvs.debian.org/pts/?cvsroot=qa is useful here.
http://wiki.debian.org/qa.debian.org/pts is linked from the front page
of p.qa.d.o, and contains a link to a presentation Raphael Hertzog
(buxy) made about the PTS.

In terms of the PTS, either asking buxy directly or -qa@l.d.o usually
works. britney and other ftp-master related topics are probably most
appropriate on dak-disc@l.d.o, imho.
