That's a lot of manual steps, especially if you need to add 3 or 4 users
to all new packages you create, like in my case.  But this can be easily
scripted using pkgdb2 API (or with packagedb-cli tool).

To make the whole process of adding new package scriptable, please
consider implementing API for requesting new packages too:

FWIW, I successfully added java-sig to two of my packages yesterday
using web UI:$package/give/
