Your second mail (the one referenced in this thread) said:
Please always only use the symbolic names for the places to upload to
(ie ftp.upload.debian.org and ssh.upload.debian.org), do not use any
machine name directly. Queues may move at any time, without further
notice and the symbolic names will be updated.
That seems to reflect what Thomas was saying. People using ftp-master
weren't using the machine name directly yet this symbolic name isn't
going to move it seems.
Perhaps you could have considered moving all the internal scripts that
reference ftp-master to some other service name rather than trying to
change every single dput config file out there in the wild and the
mindset of all the developers of the distribution.
