Great. Could you use dupload to upload the stuff or at least send an
announcement to debian-devel-changes for every uploaded package so the
others can track what you are doing ?

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows, 
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
                      (Henry David Thoreau)
