Note that I did not flaunt my deeds to the new maintainer team. My nightly
emails would have been a part of a normal developer updating his fellow
maintainers. I was perfectly content to keep all those debs in a staging
area, while I waited for an account, as I knew the work would eventually be
placed in debian.
To restate, I did the work, not because I wanted to get in to debian, but
because the work had to be done, and no one else was working on those packages
at the time.~
