The only temp solution I can imagine is to open other upload queues
(like you, Aaron said) where you could upload scirocco and bora
versions. So there will be one upload queue for each maemo release.
This could be done fairly quickly, though people who uploaded to
mistral should change their dput configurations, because the mistral
queue will also change.

It is not nice at all... Imagine if you have an app and have to
compile it with 3 SDKs and upload it 3 times, just to make it
available for everyone. But as for temporary solution.. I don't know.
Tell me your opinions pls.
