Another thought on the QUEUE processing line, if asking ftp-masters to
perform these manual checks is too burdensome, then an alternative is

3.b)  Delay any such transitioning packages, to provide time for the
maintainer (or the team) to realise the mistake and fill out a
.commands file cancelling the upload.  What would be a reasonable time
frame, 4 hours?  12 ?  24 ?


p.s.  Andreas, I'm glad you like Option 2). Yes, I mentioned
dpkg-buildpackage in the comments underneath :)
