Couldn't you put a big fat banner on mentors.debian.net during migration
time? I've noticed that there is a short paragraph at the top of the
page, but it really should be in all sorts of colours and bold. Oh, and
couldn't the upload simply be disabled?
Yes -- we're working on reaching Signum to get access to do that.
We have built the migration process so we can easily re-run it, actually.
So the race condition I described shouldn't really happen. It's really a
"just-in-case" note -- we plan to do the migration once now, and once when
Signum turns off upload (and/or adjusts DNS).
