I checked it out but then changed my mind again:  Your packaging style 
is too far from what I am used to for the 60+ other packages I package, 
alone or (preferrably) as part of teams.

I don't say that your packaging style is bad, not even that it is 
unusual.  I actually suspect that my own favorite style is the unusual 
one: CDBS using a bunch of add-on cdbs snippets, with Git as VCS.

I notice that the team-maintainance of this package is young, and that 
only a few seem to actively maintain in (2 uploaders).  If you are 
interested, I'd be happy to try convince you to switch to my favorite 
packaging style - and join your team using that.



Kind regards,
