Bug Description

<Kinnison> cprov: why do you think you need to careful?
<Kinnison> cprov: you prepare dapper.0, and set it FROZEN, then a normal run will apt-ftparchive it
<Kinnison> cprov: then you mark it released and compare
<cprov> Kinnison: uhm, the FROZEN trick must do, good point
<Kamion> ah
<Kamion> seems like a bug - if it doesn't exist, it should be apt-ftparchived no matter what state it's in, surely
<Kamion> well, possibly except for obsolete
<cprov> Kamion: currently the part that creates inexistent directoris in archive is not smart enough to transmit such situation to the a-f runner ... we could do it. File a bug on soyuz, please

(We ran into this when attempting to create dapper.0 from dapper prior to a point release. It wouldn't be a problem when creating normal non-released distroreleases.)

It will be addressed after ArchiveRework tasks, by adding restricted arguments only to the publishing API.
IMO, it's not really required by now, since we have a simpler manner to ship DotReleases.

To amend my original description slightly: we also need a careful publisher run when creating new non-released distroseries, as otherwise we don't get indices for -proposed, -updates, -security, and -backports. It would be nice if the publisher noticed that those didn't exist yet and did the right thing.
