Once a package has been uploaded for more than about 60 seconds, don't
try replacing it with a new package with the same version number.
Just upload a new version with the correct information.  Incidentally,
I don't know whether katie bothers looking at the information in the
package itself; I know the old dinstall didn't.  Have a look at the
overrides files on ftp-master.  (I don't off-hand remember where they
are kept, though.)
