I think the best we can hope for here is ~130 differences, with lib32 
packages and i686 binary blobs.  The difference list was at >300 three 
days ago....

I second that...  I build ~150 packages in the last two days and at 
least 120 of the were Sergej's.  This is a bit extreme due to all his 
perl packages but I think the point remains.

I can remember him posting about inactivity just after becoming a dev 
and have only seem evidence of his presence intermittently after that.  
I updated his geany package the other day.

Can I just add, do we have a x86_64 TU who uses KDE.  There are several 
KDE packages waiting to be built but I am running out of bandwidth for 
the month and don't want to download all the dependancies.  Same goes 
for jdk.
