I just love people commenting with *no* idea of what is going on.  Jan Horack 
(TB owner) and I (lightning owner) do talk to each other.  Jan has commit 
access to lightning and updates it regularly.  In this case it turned out that 
lightning had a lot of build issues that took a long time to solve.

So, the process is fine and is being used.
