Ah, I misunderstood. My apologies.

Packages, once uploaded, enter the Debian ecosystem and therefore
involve some time from many others: the security team, the ftpmasters,
the release managers, BSP participants, etc. as well as consuming
resources (archive space, autobuild time, etc.) So the cost needs to be
justified by the value to Debian. If there is no perceived value, the
package should not be added to the archive.

Huh. I thought Joss did say why. It's a CMS. It's PHP. That's why. :)
(and maybe that's not enough for you, but those are reasons *I* wouldn't
invest time in such an endeavour.)

If referring to Joss as "The great Josselin Mouette" was sincere and not
sarcasm, then my mistake. It had the appearance of a jab.
