TeX Live inclusion is marked done at 100% but it is untrue. The packages
are not approved yet, and in my opinion we should not hurry. Moreover I 
think that giving time limits to review is bad. A review should be 
finished when the package is 'perfect' from a packaging point of view, 
not because of a deadline. In the TeX Live case this is highly visible 
because this is a complex package, and in my opinion it needs split up 
which requires a lot of work and other reviews.
