RepRepro needs .changes suffix in inoticoming parameters

It seemed to me that without the --suffix .changes in the inoticoming command line, reprepro would be handle both incoming .dsc/.orig.tar.gz/.diff.gz and .changes/.deb combinations.

Not so. When used with scp, inoticoming triggers commands quickly enough that each incoming file gets its own process, which tears apart the combinations, and none of the incoming files are processed properly.

Corollary: upload .deb before .changes and .orig.tar.gz/.diff.gz before .dsc.
