It is a serious bug (nothing that happens in extras-testing should ever
affect the Downloads view which needs to be built from Extras only).  But it
seems like a mistake not to use the upgrade description.

Packages which have a released version in Extras need to have an Upgrade
Description.  I would tend to assume the bug will be fixed and create the
Upgrade Description to avod a tester making me down for not having an
Upgrade Description.  While the bug exists you could always make sure the
Upgrade Description also contains enough information to tell someone who
does not have it installed what it does.
