Unless you mention "Team upload" in the changelog, to be
pedantic...assuming that "aptitude-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org" is
listed in "Maintainer:"

Exactly my point. I think that having a release of aptitude not too
late (and thus give people a chance to test it as well as all
autobuilders to build it) is the best to:
- see if something unveiled yet makes aptitude RC-buggy
- give the project a sign that aptitude development is resuming
