And correct apparantly :-(
Uploading will only work when targeting 'stable', 'stable-security' or
'proposed-updates' for proposed-updates and targeting 'oldstable',
'oldstable-security' or 'oldstable-proposed-updates'. Mentioning
etch-proposed-updates, stable-proposed-updates or similar as a target
After the upload the packages reach a NEW queue like system and when
members of the Stable Release Team have accepted packages to migrate to
proposed-updates these packages will very likely be included in the next
It only demonstrates why finally documenting this can be very helpfull :-)
I'll also add a part about uploading best practices...
Thank you very much for starting the page!
