Packages may not be downloaded from the NEW queue due to US crypto regulations (and Debian's approach to fulfilling the resulting requirements); however if your package doesn't contain crypto code, you can put it on people.debian.org or some other website for other people to download/review while it's in the NEW queue.

Developer access to the queue is limited by permissions to viewing .changes files and running ls -l; ftpmaster access is limited by policy to checking the correctness of the package with various tools. General access is only trivially more limited than developer access (and is much prettier). See http://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html
