New upload delays. It is available now:

Even if the package itself has moved out of incoming and is beginning
propagation to the mirrors, there is usually a build from a port waiting
in incoming - in the case of aptitude, ia64 is currently in incoming:


To view the actual changelog:
$ sudo aptitude install deb-gview
$ deb-gview http://incoming.debian.org/aptitude_0.4.11.3-1_ia64.deb

This also allows you to view the maintainer scripts, copyright, symbols
file, shlibs file and any other text/manpage/image content of any .deb
or .udeb in any location, including foreign architectures. To view
all .debs from an upload, pass the .changes file to deb-gview instead
(but note that this results in one window per .deb and all those need to
be downloaded using GIO).
