Because I want/need the packages and see no use in doing the packaging
privately when I can make it available for all of Debian.  One thing
is getting it into Debian and ready to use, another is long term

Well, my experience is that rarely do the RFP result in anyone
stepping up, and as I need the package and did the work already, I saw
no use in not making it available from the Debian archive.
