It seemed obvious to me. If uploads to s-p-u are blocked for approval by
the SRM, this needs to happen just after a point release so that s-p-u is empty
to start with the new system (probably because once a package is in s-p-u,
there's no easy way to remove it and removing manually doesn't make much sense).

(I may be wrong however, I'm not ftpmaster)
