statement :-P )

I'm happy that you confirm my assumption that picking from the new queue
is orthogonal to the person who uploaded the package.

To Steffen: How demotivating would it be for a newcomer if a package
needs to wait for a long time for the only reason that this maintainer
ID is showing up the first time in the new queue?

Kind regards
