13 This is why I thought it was better to group them, so at least they
14 will get in all in once.

19 What are the main reasions for this latency ?
20 I imagine the package need to be tested somehow.
22 How is this "new system" you are talking about ?
23 How is the "old system", from a maintainer perspective ?
24 What appens "afterwards" ?
26 Wouldn't be nice if new ebuilds would committed to
27 a middle place (purgatory) where they wait in a queue.
28 But in the mean time audacious users could try the ebuilds
29 (simply downloading them with ftp, or ebuild rsyinc-purgatory ->
30 /usr/portage/purgatory) so at least they can be tested.
31 Does it make sense ?
