Long answer: Delayed is nothing dak knows about at all. It is all
handled by debianqueued, which is a perl script running far before
dak. Due to its age it is also not quite of the standard one wants to
have when editing code, so supporting anything like rejects in there is
So for that, yes, you want to think about the dput solution. Which would
have the nice added benefit to actually save people form uploading and
wasting bandwidth and time.
Also, should there be someone with a little too much free time ( :) )
and willing to code a bit in python, there are various thoughts and
plans around for a rewrite of the queued with much nicer functionality
and stuff. Just none of us existing team members has the time to do it,
there are always more important things (and debianqueued works).

> 16. What should you do if a security bug is discovered in one of your packages?
1) Notify firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
2) Notify upstream.
3) Try to create a patch.
4) Find out that Joey was faster.
