I have 2 questions regarding this issue. The questions may be dump because I'm 
not in the internals of FreeDOS "release management", so I apologize in advance:

1. Why do you need a COMPLETE list of all latest packages? Why isn't it 
sufficient to release a FD 1.1 with all new packages which are available and 
for those which aren't just use the old, FD 1.0 ones?

In case you DO need a complete list:

2. Why is this such a time-consuming job? And if it is, is there no better 
alternative which requires less manpower? Because quite obviously there isn't 
enough manpower available in FD to finish this job.
