Bug#712152: www.debian.org: proposed-updates page does not actually explain how do to one. Needs clarification.

I was asked to do a stable release update, which needs an upload to
proposed-updates. I had never done one, so looked for some docs.
The top hit was the page:

But after reading that, despite being an experienced DD, I still
didn't know what I actually needed to do. Nowhere does it say "To do a
proposed-update upload, you upload to the normal debian upload
machine, as for an unstable upload, but with the Distribution in the
changes file set to the targetted 'Distribution:' ('stable', or current
stable codename). It is this suitename that sends the upload to the
correct internal queue". Or something like that.

tbh I always assumed that page was intended to be user-oriented; someone from the web team will hopefully correct me if I'm wrong.

The dev-ref has a section on stable updates, at http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers-reference/pkgs.html#upload-stable (which also needs some updating, but that's not www.d.o's issue).
