Okay, sounds good.

They're in the queue to be looked at today.

Well, in some informal discussions (mostly irc) with some other 
members of the project team, we're basically going to have to 
confirm that the script is fine and that it *should* work; after 
that, we have to just trust that it does.  In the grand scheme of 
things, I guess that's what bug reports are for if it doesn't 
work correctly/at all.

On that same note, it's inevitable that we'll eventually have to 
go this route anyway if the rate of submissions increases too 
much more.  It's not a problem to test the script and packaging 
to ensure that files are placed correctly and with sane 
permissions and such, but trying to actually test the application 
itself is not going to be possible in many cases.
