I don't recall there being a problem with any of the requests, just
limited volunteer time to implement. Last I checked one or two people
handle all the list requests, adding a 3rd such person would be good.
Are you or Jorge interested? A single dedicated person is prone to
slower response times due to days off/vacation/work load and the ticket
system keeps us from duplicating work.
