That works as designed.

As the upload queue is a place anyone can upload to, we only send mails
after we successfully checked the signature against a current key in the
keyring. If that step fails, no mail will ever get out.

Thats not the most userfriendly one, if you have trouble with your key,
but its the safest option to not make us spam random people for some
forged .changes.
