When a new package is uploaded to Debian for the first time, it enters the "NEW queue", and awaits approval from an FTP Team member. From the reject-FAQ:
NEW checking is about three things. In order of priority:
- trying to keep the archive legal,
- trying to keep the package namespace sane,
- trying to reduce the number of bugs in Debian.
The source and binary packages in the NEW queue are not made publicly available. This is because the purpose of the NEW queue is mainly to work out if the packages can be distributed by Debian.
The NEW queue: http://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html
