For years now, I have often been a bottleneck to getting docs out to the public download area. The editors have always been a great help in quality assurance, but the process to actually move docs from pending uploads to the public downloads area has always been a painful (and dangerous) one that I only felt comfortable doing myself.

That time is now past. I just completed some tools that will let the editors go completely from initial upload to public download with no intervention by me necessary at all. Once they get used to the new system I'm sure we will see a great influx of new docs. We should also see a distinct lack of "Now we have to wait on Sleepy" forum posts.

So, if you see something that you want in the pending list, let your editors know. But still try to be nice please! The fact that they now have the power to give you what you want doesn't give you the right to demand it. Remember we are all volunteers here.
