Please forgive me, but I'm slightly confused here. I used the 'mirror' 
command to upload my new package, as per your example. Then I created a 
!ready file at the top level:

     cd x86/release
     mirror -eR icoutils
     [Similar for x86_64]
     cd /
     put /dev/null -o !ready

I noticed that the new files were copied into ftp.cygwin.com and then I 
sent out the announcement.

Was any part of this wrong?

Thanks in advance for the clarification,
