Yes, I don't think anyone is ducking responsibilities or work. I have
a huge appreciation for what everyone here is doing. Maybe I should
have been clearer. Even a one-line commit is a great contribution. And
then there are people who put thousands of lines in. It is awesome.
And then there are people contributing documentation. This is a
massive project in almost all dimensions.

Even so, packaging is no rocket science and it scales with people
contributing.  That is my starting point.
