I was disappointed with this too. I think we should be encouraging
newcomers to place their packaging in the standard place, so we can help
them when required. The last thing we want is node-*/js packaging being
done in a different way, in a different place.
If I had a list of Alioth logins, I would be happy to help adding them
to the team. We need more help here!
