nice to hear that there are other people out there that are
also interested in a new package. Since I am not a DD and I
can only be sponsored it might take some time to get a new
package into unstable, but believe me that I will do it.
(since others have applied for that and done nothing I can
only say that I will prove this by doing)
besides I am in the NM queue awaiting DAM approval & account
creation - who knows how long that will take.
