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
