It depends.  In the past, we've subjected major changes to some testing
(via private apt repository) before uploading, though our recent patches have
been minor, mostly involving rule tweaking.  That said, of course the best
testing is to get it out to unstable.

For minor changes, I'd be happy with something involving "release" in the
subject 2 hours before upload.  Major changes to the code/scripts should get
some testing first, I'd prefer 24 hrs.

Oh, and feel free to add yourself to Uploaders: if you've not already.
