I see.  It seems like this indicates a rather fundamental shortcoming in
the -override tagging mechanism.  If random other builds that happen to
be submitted at the wrong time will see the overridden packages, what
happens to reproducibility?  Can't we either fix it so that only the
specific desired builds see the override, or just prevent unrelated
builds from happening during the window?  This is surely not going to
be the last undesired failure if things stay like this.
