Bug Description

Regarding publishing existing apps to new Ubuntu releases, sg says:
So the ideal situation would be something like this:
 1. At Beta ?? we test all the apps to see if they load

 2. We move all apps so they are read to be published

 3. We email all developers telling them to test and confirm publishing
Currently a dev can only publish/unpublish an app for all supported distroseries. To enable the above, we need to ensure devs can publish/unpublish an app for each distroseries for which it is uploaded in the PPA.

Another way to do this would be to have the concept of a "prerelease" distroseries, like we have in apps.u.c, and not publish any apps for prerelease apps, so that QA can happen and then we just push a button to make everything public at the same moment.

This would be more straight forwards (multiple states for an app sounds ugly) but it would fix a narrower range of cases. otoh, I don't know if we have real issues that would be fixed in the more general case.
