Well, I think this reality sucks and should be fixed. Uploading manually build 
security packages is a workaround which is error prone, as could be seen in 
the last months, where there were several uploads done in wrong build 

If there are really such non-caring buildd admins/porters this should be fixed 
at the root of the problem and not by using a workaround, which introduces 
new problems and doesnt touch the root at all.
