Builds will be signed automatically post-build and moved to the buildd-local
upload queue, which is processed every 15 minutes. process-unchecked
runs every 15 minutes, too, as far as I know, so they should be available
within 30 minutes for other package builds if the package isn't insanely
large. Maybe an hour at worst, if we hit the queue during dinstall.

That doesn't make sense. The current set of arch:all packages in binary-foo is
there for a reason. (In fact certain older arch:all binaries are held
availabl/held backe in it if the new package isn't built yet for an
architecture. Which is also the reason why we need binary-all after all, it's
not guaranteed that we see all arch:all packages in the union of the Packages
files of all architectures.)
