  well, you're not alone, there is 217 source packages in NEW, most of 
them for more than 2 weeks, not to mention the ones that have been 
uploaded many times which hides the fact that they rot there since 
ages.

  NEW has worked for something like 6 monthes pretty well, maybe 8, and 
is stuck again. I'm still thinking that NEW for packages that already 
are in the archive is totally inefficient.
  at the least, NEW should be split into real NEW uploads (source 
packages that never wer ein the archive) and another queue for the 
packages that just have a new binary package. that queue should be 
treated really faster, it's often a big block for teams that see their 
upload schedule completely stuck because of the slowness of NEW 
processing. This produces irritation and frustration, and is of no good 
for the project.

  Oh and as we are speaking of NEW, I also think that most of the 
refusal for tiny problems (in tiny I mean that they need a couple of 
seconds to fix, like one forgotten file in a debian/copyright ...) 
should be accepted instead, with an RC open bug.
