You probably have an .upload file lying around there that is blocking
dput. Either remove that .upload file or use -f.
I can't find a local .upload file.
I saw the -f option in dput but I'm reluctant to use an -f option which
should be reserved for situations where you really know what you're

You know as well as me there is a balance between reading documentation

for dcut and I misinterpreted the main description. The first time
despite the cookbook description in intro_maintainers, I read through
the dput man page.
