If the package cannot be built by the buildds for sid nor experimental,
it doesn't make much sense to upload it already. It it only builds in
experimental, upload it there instead.

I recommend to make any changes you need for the packaging in git,
preparing it as much as possible for an upload but wait with the actual
upload until the build dependency issues are resolved.

For qgis, osm2pgsql and the new osmium packages I've done that, they are
pretty much ready for upload in git, but first we need to get gdal
rebuilt in unstable now that libdap is no longer a blocker.

Hopefully the NetCDF 4.4.0 final release is published soon, I'd like to
use that for the netcdf transition. I had expected the release already,
but so far no new release but still much activity in the upstream git.

I don't want to wait much longer for the 4.4.0 final release, the
4.4.0~rc2 packages are ready in experimental and the netcdf-fortran
update is blocking the GCC 5 gfortran modules transition.

After getting netcdf updated in unstable, it's a good time to move gdal
to unstable too. The spatialite->postgis->gdal->spatialite circular
dependency may also be an issue for the gdal transition like it is for
the geos transition.

Because all these recursive transitions will take some time to complete,
it doesn't make much sense to wait before working on your packages. It's
reasonably easy to rebuild broken build dependencies and use those in
pbuilder to test your builds locally.
