I'll have to agree with you completelly on this one. I've been in the Process
for over 2-3 (lost track!) months now [officially and not so officially].
Personally, I don't mind wating a bit and have someone sponsor my packages..
It would be nice to be able to contribute faster, but then life goes on...
