 There's always the upstream URL included that you can follow if you
think it's unclear anyway.

 I consider it much more practical to go through the new packages in the
pools instead, for several reasons:

 -) you can already actually directly try the packages out instead of
having to crave for it to appear in the pool
 -) you can already actually write bugreports about bad package
descriptions (which I do regularly)
 -) you don't waste your time on ITPs that turns out to never appear in
the pool or die away upstream wise (which unfortunately does happen from
time to time)

 Of course, going through ITPs has its benefits too, but I guess
checking what's new in the pool might be more promising for your
approach and less waste of time because of "check that from time to
time". :)

 So long, and thanks anyway for your inputs!
