I have some question: Shall we only test the web frontend at 
http://new-hackage.haskell.org/ or also the access via 'cabal install' and 
'cabal upload'? How can I tell 'cabal' to use new-hackage instead of 
old-hackage temporarily?

If I upload a package via 'cabal upload' then it appears at old hackage. 
Given that we shall test uploading to new-hackage, what happens with 
packages on September, 24th, that I upload to new-hackage today?
