I added jpng as an "approved repo" for gerolde.  It add packages there:

1) create ~/staging/jpng on gerolde
2) upload using: commitpkg jpng "message"
3) on gerolde: /arch/db-update jpng

It all depends how many people help with the rebuild...   The last few 
rebuilds have been done by only two or three people.  We could get 
through most of this in a day or two if people helped out.
