You have, I asked at least once before.

Could the list be put somewhere (on the web) periodically? Espescially with 
some kind of a status whiteboard so we don't all try the same ones - though I 
guess posting bug-report updates could work for that.

Also, I've actually got several such packages built locally, but with no idea 
how I should go about getting them into FTP. I just don't really want to open 
bug reports when the actual source for the maintainer is fine, it just needs 
apt-get source -b <pkg> and an upload...

I have a site (at southpole.penguinpowered.com) where some of my stuff is 
up... I would be willing to aid in the shoveling of these files, but I expect 
I speak for quite of few of us who aren't developers (by which I mean official 
debian  developers) in not being sure what do do with the packages we've built.
