> Should we automate these complaints?
At least for i386/amd64/spark64/ppc -- yes.
> Should we automate the regeneration of the pkg_summary?
I think no. There is a risk to make a real mess instead of normal
package repository. The only correct way to generate pkg_summary(5) is
to use bulk builds both for building packages and uploads. Manual
interventions should be avoided or minimized.

Yes. In my case upload is very slow. In order to reduce a period of time
when a repository is in "unclear" state I thought about two directories
for uploading and swapping them in the end.
