Its on my todo list.  Unfortunately the build time takes some time and I
will not stress test the battery of my laptop.  Reminding is fine in any
case. :-)

While ftpmaster can deal with more than one version in the new queue I
personally wait until a package is accepted.

I admit new queue can be stress test the patience of newcomers.  To be
short:  You can never know how long a package takes.  Despite the name
is "queue" its not a FIFO procedure.  Sometimes its helpful to give some
hints about priorities and why a package might be more important than
others.  BTW, I even had send a mail to ftpmaster ranking your packages
in the category "Would motivate newcomer" which was below "needed for
bcbio" package.  Seems that ranking was not helpful to proceed with the
list I gave. :-(

Kind regards
