That's what I'm affraid of aswell. When it takes everything from a few 
weeks to almost a year to get a package included or updated, it 
sometimes feels a bit pointless to keep submitting new stuff, since 
they'll probably be old and outdated by the time they are imported into 
pkgsrc. (But this might only be me?)

Anyway, I'm not complaining, since we all (well, most of us anyway) do 
this in our sparetime. But I still like to make my point heard though. 
And I should probably mention too, that other than than the delay in 
importing and updating packages, I'm really happy with pkgsrc :)
