First, I should note this whole thread is ridiculous -- NEW packages in
the general case simply aren't a priority worth obsessing over. Yes

Anyway, if you've got a "collection of clueful DDs doing sanity checks
on NEW packages" you've got a collection of ftpmasters, either literally
or de facto; I don't think there's any point bothering with unofficial
I'm speaking only for myself.
