Yes, I know were a collective, and I know we share the workload. That's why
I haven't taken on more packages myself, so that I can keep the reds in that
difflist down. Me and Eric build for community too by the way.

The reason why I asked about the missing packages is not to point fingers,
or not to pass the workload to someone else, but to know if there's a reason
for their absence in the ftp site. Thanks Jan and Alex for clearing this up


P.S - We really need to push more TU's to use your build machine. I
fantasize someday where all TU's use your build machine.. and I don't have
to update a 100 MB texlive-fonts package I know nothing about. Perhaps a
front page news item saying such a build machine exists?
