Once a package has been uploaded, the request should only be reopened
when the upload was rejected by the archive later (eg. manual reject
from NEW, signature problems, ...). For new releases a new request
should be filed instead.
If the version number changes before an upload (for example when a new
upstream version was released before the package was sponsored), the
sponsoree should send a follow-up to the current request and retitle it
to include the new version number.
My reasoning is that issues should hopefully be addressed once a package
has been uploaded and no longer apply to the next request, they only
make the bug log longer. In contrast they might still apply when there
was no upload.
