Sorry about that. For some reason I was under the impression that
uploads to -updates were now redirected to -proposed, like is done in
the development release. Which begs the question of why we don't do
that.

Redirecting uploads from -updates to -proposed would be more
consistent. Unless I'm missing something, nothing should ever go
directly into -updates. Even packages with MicroReleaseExceptions
still have to go through -proposed; they just don't need to manually
verify each specific bug-fix.

Thanks,
