There's quite a few problems in your diff file. The next 3 points would
be what I believe the release team would answer, the last point is
specific to the Openstack packaging team.

* Could you please send again the debdiff, but *WITHOUT* your *~ backup
files? Probably you should have carefully read it before replying like
this to the release team who is already overloaded with Debian tasks.
That's the kind of joke they don't really like...

* I don't think there's the need to use testing-proposed-updates.
Uploading to SID will be just fine, as anyway, we haven't uploaded
anything newer in SID which would pose a problem, and that we use
Experimental for Folsom. (in other words: nothing prevents uploading to
SID, and when we upload there it's in the hope it migrates to testing)

* There is already a version -6 in SID. So you should really upload
2012.1-7, not 2012.1-5wheezy1, which is the scheme for security uploads
in Debian Stable.

* Our Git already contains entries for -6 and -7. Please use that,
modifying the candidate version -7, and do not get out of sync with our
Git please, otherwise it's going to be a nightmare!

Also, this issue has been pending for 6 months! I do appreciate that you
finally decide to work on it, even that late. But I continue to refuse
to take the responsibility for it. The main mistake, IMO, was to leave
the issue as-is, doing nothing to fix it. So you and Loic should really
take the responsibility for the upload, and make sure it's in a correct
shape *in time* for the release. I surely would feel bad if Quantum had
to be removed from Wheezy. Please don't leave this pending again.
