You should only archive uploads that have somehow entered the archive  
via Debian or otherwise. It is a bad idea to archive uploads that just  
have not been processed by the uploader, because someone else may want  
to take them over. MOTUs have spent time reviewing many of these  
entries and I don't want to see that work wasted. We could in fact  
flag entries older than six months that they are up for grabs.
