I don't have a login there, but from doing a quick check for firefox and 
midori it looks correct. That is those packages are missing (and those 
are the packages I heard discussion about).

But on the official ftp server, midori and firefox, firefox10, and 
firefox36 do exist. But the pkg_summary doesn't list.

There is a mix of packages.

I have scripts that I manually run on the ftp server that detect 
problems like this.

See  as one example of this.
