We are talking about (at least) 20 source packages resulting in 74
binary packages here! And that's not including all the python
dependencies that go with them, last time I counted about 50 of them
(some versions might be incompatible with each other). I'm (nearly)
alone to do the work, plus it's not trivial to test all of that, and the
upgrade path.

There is only 24 hours in a day, and some times I do sleep or eat... :)
