Um - I think I sometimes added people in the past and forgot to reply to 
the list. I usually wait a few weeks for a couple of requests to build up, 
and then do the requests in one go.

It's possible that requests fall through the cracks from time to time - I 
usually don't worry about that because IMHO someone who really wants to be 
added will usually retry at least once. ;-/

Still got these on my TODO list: shopforlinux.co.uk, olysy.eu, luatec.com, 
debian-linux.w.pl, possibly dittaferrara.it.

Yes, that would be useful! Unfortunately, a bit of bureaucracy is usually 
involved when you want to put some kind of script online on debian.org.
