Sorry for the distraction about dupload!  You're clearly right that dput
is a separate package, i don't know what i was thinking.

I note that dput-ng also appears to default to FTP-based upload, since
/etc/dput.d/profiles/ftp-master.json has: "default_host_main":
"ftp-master" (so i'm cloning this bug over there to recommend that
dput-ng also default to ssh.upload.d.o)

but the fact that dupload defaults to ssh.upload is promising, and
suggests that it's not the end of the world for a comparable tool to use
a sensible default.

Could the dput or dput-ng maintainers weigh in on what is needed to make
this change?
