	And I think we should not create wrong, arbitary expectations
 of current practice (like, do not upload code not known ready for
 release into unstable), and sit back and expect other people to
 change infrastructure.

	Historical practice has been to only use Experimental for
 unknown quality packages (like nightly CVS builds) if a stable
 versions *of the same package* exists already. New packages go into
 Sid.  In this case, no emacs-cvs package exists; so it should go into
 Sid, not experimental.

	If you exoect Experimental to be autobuilt, please set up the
 infrastructure, get it working, and then ask the ftp masters to
 accept your set of maintained auto-builders  as official providers
 of packages for the other arches.

small and rodent-like with padlocked ears, as if they had stepped out
of a painting by Goya. Stravinsky
