Yes. You should upload to the same place, and instead of using
"unstable" as the target distribution, use "testing" or
"testing-proposed-updates". Naturally, since you will be basing your
package on the version currently in testing, you should set a version
number higher than that, but just about high enough. For example,
5.21.1-2+squeeze1 ot 5.21.1-2squeeze1 should be appropriate.
In addition, you should rebuild it in a squeeze chroot, as opposed to
the standard sid chroot.
(Please correct me if I am wrong).
HTH, and thanks!
