I ment "blocks" as in prevents though... and currently there have been 5000 
untested packages for testing2sid because of this. So this is a real problem.

/me nods. 50 and 2 weeks seems reasonable. Also, as they get *recycled*, no 
harm will be done :-)

yes, so be it. if the package has migrated it has migrated. testing users are 
expected to have some such problems. I really dont think we should run 
piuparts on snapshot.d.o ;-)

also, how to prevent the problem we had, with 5000 untested packages...

I fail to understand how this is related...

Cool. I do like *thinking* more than *force* ;-)
