I made a mistake in an email describing changes to the package upload
notification emails. This coincided with a DNS problem at my ISP
meaning I didn't receive your replies questioning what I'd written.
I'm sorry for the confusion I've caused!

Note: where I said the subject starts "Approved:" it is actually "Accepted:".

The email I sent should have read:


Package upload notification subject change

With the release of Launchpad 1.1.10 (October 24th), the subject line
of package upload notification emails will change.

There are two benefits to this:

1. A bug that incorrectly gave the "accepted" subject line to emails
  about "unapproved" uploads will be fixed. The subject lines
  will now accurately reflect the status of the upload.

2. The subject line will have a consistent format across the different

The new subject lines are:

New: <packagename> <version> ([source|binary])
Accepted: <packagename> <version> ([source|binary])
Waiting for approval: <packagename> <version> ([source|binary])

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please reply to
this email.
