So am I.  Which is why I want the uploads to happen as soon as
possible.  The chances are slim with an upload right now, but it is
_zero_ with no upload.

Yes.  I don't think it is a good idea to pull strings to get the
packages included out of order.  It will give us bad reputation if
there is a problem with the package.

I fear we will need to keep a collection of modified packages for this
release too. :(

I agree.  I hope Konstantions manage to get it uploaded in time.
