I thought packman was, for the most part, reserved to packages that (chiefly
for legal reasons) couldn't be hosted on OBS. May we ask what's wrong
with the hamradio project?

They could be published, but they would also need to be maintained as much
as on OBS.
I mean, I get the part about not having time anymore, but what's the
