Really? This is boring stuff that needs doing. I would be grateful if
someone did it for me on one of my packages, assuming they didn't break

As Simon pointed out, such uploads should go via DELAYED/10 in case the
developer wanst to override (as Rene would in this case, although not
for any good reason I can discerne). If xnox forgot that then a tut is
in order.
