Never do this.  The release team can override the propagation delay for an
already-uploaded package; reuploading like this just adds to the load on
autobuilders and decreases your chances that gnunet will be built and
uploaded on all architectures in time for the release.

It is also an abuse of the urgency field to claim that a set of translation
updates and documentation fixes are highly urgent...

I've done so, but the chances of the package getting in are now lower than
before, not higher.
