So, even if you would like to change something general like the 
on SBo, it will hardly happen because of the workload?
This is not meant offending, really, i just want to get the point.

If nothing gonna be changed now, it's fair to say that, to not make the 
OPTIONAL-discussion a fight against windmills.

If it's all about manpower, something should be done about that.
Maybe the community can get more ability to contribute in some ways, 
beside providing SlackBuilds.
