Frank: If you want you can do an upload, just add
to the cfg file (if feynmf is the right tpm name). Then we have to add something like
	recommends;texlive-metapost;feynmf (>= ???)
(version necessary???) and maybe something like
I guess this should be enough. If you need more info let me know, otherwise I do it in two weeks.
