Bug Description

If you have upload privileges to some package sets but not others, and you try to upload a package you're not allowed to upload, then you get a message like this:

2009-09-07 16:17:55 WARNING Upload was rejected:
2009-09-07 16:17:55 WARNING The signer of this package has no upload rights to this distribution's primary archive. Did you mean to upload to a PPA?

But it's not true here that the signer has no upload rights at all; in this case I'm running in a test environment where the signer has upload rights to Xubuntu-specific packages, just not to the particular package I'm test-uploading. The error message is inaccurate here.

Right, the checks to show this message take components into account, but not packagesets.
