My impression is that Norbert and I have different goals:
Norbert has a bigger number of and more current packages.
I'm trying to create sets of packages that are more like distributions
in the sense that they reach a stable state after some time. E.g. in my
first set of packages for woody I've included several patches into
XFree86 4.2.1-4 instead of putting XFree86 4.3.0 into these packages
since they are already in a stable state.
