Hi Paul,

Don't blame yourself too much for the delay, it's really nice of you to
have done this work (I don't think anyone else volunteered!)

For all those points, we really need to talk to the interpreter team.
But it would also be nice to talk to other distros about that. (If you
follow planet debian, you know I've been thinking about cross-distro
discussions recently). I hope things move forward on that topic soon,
so it will be easy to discuss that topic with other distros.

This was already done during debconf, however, the currently way the PTS
handles subscriptions is not really optimal. I've just subscribed the
list to the packages that were added after debconf.

The best would be that people remember to subscribe the list after
making the first upload of a package.

We could discuss that with other distros as well.
