Yes, that process completed fast, must faster than I expected. As you say,
it used to take much longer....

What is needed, as you say, is that permission is given to upload through
dak.

When I quote from https://wiki.debian.org/DebianMaintainer/Tutorial, it is
the "sponsor" who issues the dak command to grant permissions:

-- begin quote --

Once you have your key in the debian-maintainers keyring, you will be able
to upload packages, where the following conditions hold:

* the package does not have to pass through the NEW queue
* the sponsor has sent a dak command allowing you to upload as described in
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2012/09/msg00008.html

-- end quote --

Blessings, Teus
