How about a flag in the package's control file and an appropriate
column in the PTS?
I'm not sure about the details. Think about this use case: You're in
the middle of the transition, so this is ok NMU all "your" packages
related with that transition. You won't upload a revision to point out
that NMUs are welcome. We're using wiki articles and stuff like that
today. There's wotomae (DWTT) coming too..
Well, i think the general idea is ok, we need to think about the
details and side effects. I would prefer something using PTS, but not
requiring package changes. It could be a signed mail to PTS
subscribing/unsubscribing packages from our own "Low Threshold" list.
The uploader would be able to query this information by email or using
the web interface.
