Thanks for your help. It's certainly needed and much appreciatted.
But, I had to take this week as PTO because of some unforeseen events, so I won't be
able to follow up in a timely manner. Next week I'll get to you and hopefully
we'll expedite this and get it done.
I'll ping you early next week.
Thanks a lot!

Odd. Maybe that is for new packages. For existing packages it has taken
me less than a week to get approved to become a maintainer (with commit
privileges) for a package.
Cleber, can you point me to some of the hold-ups on getting you approved?
Being in Westford, I might be able to poke people directly to move things
