It has been a while since I synchronised with the FTP masters (CC'ed),
so things might have changed. From memory:
* There is no one actively on ddebs on the dak-side right now.

Some possibly interesting files/methods in dak:
* daklib/archive.py - class "ArchiveUpload", method "_final_suites"

- Breadcrumb trail ends at method "_check_new_binary_overrides"
* daklib/upload.py - class "Binary", method "component"
