Thank you and Mattia for pointing that out. And it would be better if the ftp-master site provide graphs indicating "how much packages are processed". With these graphs one are less likely to misinterpret the situation of the NEW queue. > I have not seen any applause in this thread for your offer to help.

I just prefer email because conversations are archived, while those in IRC are not. -- Best,
