Yes, I know that this is sometimes quite hard, and that this is not your
fault. Doesn't make me really more happy though :(

For example, yes. Of course, if you do another upload to unstable, you
must make sure that the unstable version is larger than the volatiles

Ok. Please feel free to upload the packages as soon as you consider it
appropriate. The source package will however stay in
sarge-proposed-updates/volatile until there are enough binary packages
(i.e. at least i386, amd64, powerpc) to move it to sarge/volatile (but
that shouldn't be an issue for the maintainers to build).

Uploading goes to volatile-master.debian.net with anonymous ftp.
