I thought we agreed that we could use the -proposed and -security
pockets for the rootfs (os-snap).

So, we push the deb to -proposed and build an os-snap that includes it
for edge. We can then copy that deb to the -updates pocket and not
rebuild the os-snap, because that is a copy, while AIUI you have to
rebuild if you move from PPA to primary archive.
