Most of the main developers have been away at UDS, and then at the 
Canonical Company Conference (All hands), including the guy who 
allocates the sponsorships around, for the main queue.  I'm guessing 
it's just a particularly busy time for them, particularly as most of 
them are trying to get the base system merges done (ie, priority: 
essential stuff, toolchain, etc).

And, again, MOTU != core dev.  MOTU's can not upload directly to main. 
Therefore, it's not a question of workload on the MOTU side at all - and 
so i suspect that the above arguments, which all applied to MOTU, not 
core dev, are null and void.  Excluding the quality arguments.
