Yes, I entered some packages into the repository without being a DD. The
idea was to get the needed packages for vCard in there, but alas, I ran
out of time and never got around to get them into shape enough for
release. vCard, being widely adopted in its own right, and the basis
for things such as hCard and an RDF vocabulary, is quite important.
But I guess, by having them in SVN, small incremental changes can be
done as time allows by the whole group, so that one day they may be
released. That's all, really... :-) Well, also, I think I entered a
package I needed at work.
