Hi Graeme,

Thanks for the feedback! "Delphinus" is indeed an interesting project,
let's hope somebody will have the time and energy to convert it to Lazarus.
Personally I prefer a central repository, so each package can be checked
individually. I'm not a control freak, I just want to make sure that each
package in the repository can be compiled/installed.
