I have done that and packages now appear in wget-list and currency
script seems to pick it up. The script would need some modifications
though, so that's the first con I didn't count at earlier. The another
ine is that anduin script will pick them up in missing files so there is
more work for Bruce, given that there are a bit more modules around than
I remember.

Given the number of modules (I don't recall being that many), I don't
have the time to do it right now - maybe sometimes in the future if I
don't forget it.

The final change can be found here (github URL used for proper syntax
highlighting so it can easily be seen what has been changed):


I also took the liberty to fix up some empty spaces and changed a
sentence for SGMLSpm.

Attached is the raw patch that can be applied to trunk as-is. As always,
I ask for applying the patch as-is and changing whatever's needed
afterwards so I can see what I could possibly change.
