| a) inclusion in the testing distribution, if still possible

Is handled automagically, if you haven't screwed up anything ;)  (that
is, it goes into testing after 10 days of testing in unstable, unless
it has RC bugs, that is).  Read more at http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/

| b) inclusion in the unstable distribution, if still possible

That's were we all upload to.

| c) uploading using dupload and scp

Add something like 

package config;

$cfg{'ftp-master'} = {
	fqdn => "ftp-master.debian.org",
	login => getlogin() || $ENV{USER} || $ENV{LOGNAME},
	incoming => "/org/ftp.debian.org/incoming/",
	mailto => "debian-changes\@lists.debian.org", # stable
	mailtx => "debian-devel-changes\@lists.debian.org",	# unstable, exper.
	visibleuser => getlogin() || $ENV{USER} || $ENV{LOGNAME},
	visiblename => "",
	fullname => "",
        # The dinstall on master now sends announcement itself. May 1999.
	dinstall_runs => 1,
        method => "scpb"

$default_host = "ftp-master";

to ~/.dupload.conf

and run

dupload xdrawchem_0.85-1_i386.changes

The changelog decides whether it goes into stable or unstable.  Unless
you have _very_ good reasons for it going into stable, it should go
into unstable.  Very good reasons include security holes and that the
package as it is in stable is totally unuseable.

Be sure to run lintian on your package before uploading it, though. :)
