well, that's only half the story, isn't it?

shr team chooses which packages to include, so yes they are
responsible for what they produce.

as raster's pointed out, these releases aren't for public consumption
but for testing only. you could very easily stick to the blessed
releases, and not break every shr install out there on every update.

or, if you need help doing something, and don't have the manpower -
ask. i'm sure there are many willing volunteers who would work on
fixing this. it's really frigging annoying.
