As soon as you got the feeling that they should be ok - Upload them - You
might then delete them from your local repository and get a broader
testing community :)

We are always able to replace the probably broken packages by bumbing
the binary version by an architectural ".N" extension to the debian
version. I already did this with glibc, dpkg, ncurses etc ...

Also do this when changing something in the source package to
include a changelog entry and bump the version - This makes clear
that something changed to the original source version.

     Why is it called "common sense" when nobody seems to have any?
