candidate package functionality is incomplete #1041
If you upload a candidate package, and then click on "maintain", then you get a page that says "Here, you can delete a candidate, publish it, upload a new one, and edit the maintainer group.". However, it isn't actually possible to do any of those things.
Some more information:
Before going live, we should either finish the functionality, or disable it completely (i.e. remove the "maintain" link, and perhaps rename "upload candidate" to "check package").
http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/cabal-devel/2012-September/009111.html says that this is almost implemented, just the relevant links missing.
