I do not know the protocol well to write it hear but I just read it:

  Subject: Bits from the Release Team:

  In this "bits":

   * Freeze reminder <FREEZE>
   * Transition window closed <TRANSITIONS>
   * Final architecture health check <ARCH-HEALTH>
   * Testing migration and security review <MIGRATION>
  Transition Window Closed <TRANSITIONS>
  The window for new transitions closed on 5th September 2014. We are no
  longer accepting new transitions for Jessie.
  Ongoing transitions still need to be finished, so we ask for your
  co-operation in completing them as quickly as possible so we can get on
  with the main event.
  Please do not start new transitions. They will most likely be reverted
  or packages removed from Jessie, both of which are ugly. We don't really
  want to do either.

Because you are not suppose to cause such situation.

If this update contain ABI change, I guess we should not upload it.

If this is a just minor bug fix version only without major library
version change, the best thing to do is use the previous upstream
version and add patch with bumping debian revision.

The version change from 0.3.3 -> 0.3.4 ... hmmmm this may be just a
minor version only.  Maybe we can upload....
