The package pool is going to save us a heap of issues when this gets moved so it is worth the wait.

This would probably be also a good time to remind the maintainers that
there are still packages left for the community cleanup.. only a few
are still remaining. I would like to finally see the community cleanup
marked as "complete" :)
