Uploaded means the buildd has recieved a signed changes file and has
dput/duploaded the package into the incoming queue.
Every 15 minutes incoming is processed and packages are added to the
secret incoming Packages.gz files and synced with wanna-build. At that
point packages become installed.
So if you see something being "uploaded" for a while then something
went wrong. e.g. an upload error. The buildd admin has to upload the
package again or return it for a rebuild.
