It adds a package without recording dependencies. Such a package will
never be considered for updates.  In short a base package is a package

Sure, we use git on github so of course it's even more convenient for
us if you use it yourself and create a pull request.  However, you
don't _have_ to do that, just posting patches to the list is also

millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
