Excellent news ! I was also thinking that there were not enough packages in the
NEW queue and that uploads with lintian errors were causing too often critical
bugs that needed immediate catching at upload time. 

Automatic rejection of packages with errors not justified by overrides is of
course a good idea, but can we get to a compromise where the maintainer is free
to take the responsibility to override errors?
