Those are generally not-uploaded for a reason - either because they
slipped through the cracks of the buildd (my fumblings at setting it up
caused a few such) or because they raised red flagged warnings during
compilation and I marked them for a look before uploading.  I've posted
that list too.  I know, I need to make it more available.  I'm working
on it.
