I guess willysilly's story indeed has some effect here.
The other thing, I guess, is that people seem to like some kind of
clearness in repositories,
i.e. don't want binary repos to contain very rarely used packages.
On the other hand, I see nothing wrong in providing as many binary
packages as possible
(obviously with good quality and maintained), but in this case it's
better to have 50 TUs with 10 packages than 1 with 500 packages, IMHO.
sergej already agreed to share his packages:
> If anybody want to adopt my package, just mail me...
I don't think creating a 100-300 orphans in Unsupported now will be
much better than maintaining them in Community. :-/
So, my suggestion here is: let sergej continue his job, but try to
rethink the need of some packages for Community, as it's better to
adopt a more voted package & drop some less needed IMHO.

P.S.: sergej, do not top-post please. ;-)
