I was under the impression that the current status was:
* If Main - Upload to queue and proceed through the SRU process,
documenting use case etc on the bug report.
* If non-main, get ack *before* uploading.

If this is changed, it still doesn't address the issue that perhaps the
current ~ubuntu-sru team is overworked.  I know all the team have other,
perhaps more pressing tasks to work on - but it does feel it's a
bottleneck at the moment.

Would having it wait in the unapproved queue help make the SRU ack
turnaround faster?

Kind Regards,
