I've seen the same behaviour as you. I agree that it would be nice if the
deposits could be made directly to the review buffer, rather than to the
depositing user's area. Maybe there's a way to do it, but I haven't found
it yet.

As for your second point, I actually prefer things to keep working the way
they are. For me, it's just nice that there's a layer of human
intervention to prevent potential deposit abuse - and I although I can't
read the mind of the EPrint developers, I think this is done by design. So
it's just something you have to warn your users about. I don't know how
many uploads you're trying to do, I suppose if there's a whole lot of
them, then yes it can become tedious to approve and publish the new
