I have no strong opinion on this, other than the trailer line should
be updated to (as Reinhardt mentioned before) the point where you
believe the package is ready to be uploaded. This is because, if
someone did the most work, I prefer to keep that name in the trailer
line instead of mine (yes, I know I can do it manually, but lets
define the process correctly).
