Or better still, follow
so it doesn't end up being overlooked and forgotten about.

Yes, this mix-up is really our fault; we don't advertise or enforce our
policies well enough (I'm not even sure if we've got total agreement on
what they are?).

It's also raised an interesting question of who can upload the packages
maintained by libraries at . I guess we just create a sensible looking list
of people (roughly equal to those who release Haskell implementations
probably makes sense).
