Bug Description

Binary package hint: dput

This is the current default dput.cf:

[ubuntu]
fqdn = upload.ubuntu.com
method = ftp
incoming = /
login = anonymous

for sftp you need:

[ubuntu]
fqdn = upload.ubuntu.com
method = sftp
incoming = ubuntu
login = (launchpad nick)

The default dput.cf should make itself more amenable to the latter, as some of us require sftp uploads due to awful ISPs. I suggest just adding the entire sftp section right below the ftp one, however have it commented out. A similar example could be made for PPAs. That way we won't need to search around the internet for how to enable sftp anymore.

Still relevant with Trusty's shipped dput.

summary: - Change "incoming = /" in dput.cf to "incoming = ubuntu" for sftp-

given that there is no dput implementations that support proxies for ftp uploads this is slightly more urgent, as generally there are ssh proxy setups readily available that just work.
