kpovmodeler is *certainly* not unmaintained, and i don't know if all the 
others really need that much additional work even if they aren't the best 
apps in the world.

how did you arrive at these conclusions?

i think we ought to be doing what we originally planned: teams can pop a tag 
on their apps that indicates they'd like that revision to be packaged. it 
pretty much resolves these kinds of issues completely.

only if they are shipping a new release. that's not guaranteed. the 
tag-the-version approach helps resolve this issue nicely as well.
