What conceivable reason is there for ever moving the ftp queue off of
ftp-master?  It doesn't make sense to force everyone to switch their configs
from ftp-master.debian.org to ftp.upload.debian.org unless there was an
expectation that the queue would be moved, and I can't see any way that this
would ever be desirable.  What byzantine model for uploads is being
proposed, and why?
