Hackage people, what's the plan here?

My assumption was that "Upload a package candidate" in Hackage 2 was
just meant to check for problems in the package (which AFAIK is what
"Checking a Cabal package" does in Hackage 1).

It looks like more functionality might be planned, but not implemented?
Should we just remove the "maintain" link for now?
