After the freeze I will be committing several packages, one of which

am not concerned about the granularity of the packages themselves.
However, I am concerned about populating the distfiles at so that the distfiles will be fetched from there once
they are outdated on the main site.

Can you talk to the maintainers of this distfile and explain them that what they are doing is wrong?
