There is indeed no chace that a normal human can look at all
descriptions of the gazillions of ITP that are currently flooding
-devel (and I'm not only talking about Rafael ones here).

There seems to be some crazyness about packaging new stuff these
days. That would be fine.....if only our existing packages were well
maintained.....which, for many of them is certainly not true.

If someone cares to listen: when you think about ITPing each and every
piece of FLOSS that pops around: think about *helping* people who
maintain existing packages instead of adding even more noise to our
noisy bunch of various crap^W software.
