Those have been sent out multiple times.

You keep saying that, but what documentation are you looking for?  From
a maintainers standpoint, all you need to do is 'make build' and follow
the DevelFreezePolicy.

We've sent the above URLs multiple times to this list.

If that is your final answer, we will have to come up with some way of
dealing with those packages.  Rahul is asking for them to be pulled from
the repositories.  I had hoped to avoid things like that since it
doesn't really fix anything.

Are you effectively orphaning your packages?

Our lack of knowledge about every package that exists has little to do
with workflow.

Which and how did they fail?
