It's just a much needing QA as it is needing packages built in the first 
place.  7.2 packages require extra work.  I get many good submissions and 
work for 7.3, do put out a 7.2 and an 8.0 package most often I have to do 
the work myself, and that can take too long.  When I took over this 
project it was with the caveat that I am not a developer, but a project 
manager.  Sure I can rebuild packages and stuff, but I can't spend all my 
time engineering and backporting patches when updates need to be pushed, 
mirrors need to be added, infrastructure needs to be built etc...

8.0 is even worse than 7.2.
