Yes, I just got a proper method of submitting these in one email for
each particular chain of dependencies.
I will make up a chart of each group that needs to be done together.
Since there is always one or more first ones at the bottom, I can ask
for those first and work upwards from there.
The cpanfile looks very simple, but then comes out a ton of dependencies
for each one.
I'll try to come up with something easy to follow.

I was also thinking that a page showing what had been submitted and
another showing what was committed to the tree would be helpful.
Submitted but still needing changes will also help show where more work
needs to be done to get the rest of a section finished out.

I should have started out more organized like this from the start.
Some of the PGObject ones have been a bit of a challenge to get them to
pass the database testing. I also made a stupid mistake that I need to
go back and fix in some of those. Oh well 8-/  live and learn!
