I've redesigned the system, set up a database to manage the postings, and have started loading up new packages from your suggestions into the queue. I will try to add some commentary on each package in addition to its description to help answer the why question. Let me know how it goes. If I managed to avoid making any silly mistakes, things should start showing up again weekdays at 1500 GMT. I'm skipping weekends for now until the queue builds a nice buffer zone. The database will be used for a future web page where folks can submit package suggestions along with their own comments for why they think that package rocks.
Thanks for reading. If you have questions, more complaints, or know of an awesome Debian package the world needs to know about, see the instructions on the debaday userinfo page.
