this comes from trusting package authors.  the mongolians are
particularly difficult to deal with -- they never answer mails (and ccs
to corff don't help either).

there's probably more we could do to check submissions (we do fairly
regularly spot mistakes) but i (for one) am certainly in no position to
spot something like that, since i don't have a complete system at my
disposal, as you apparently have.

i'm inclined to mend the brokenness on the archive, and send mail to the
latest listed author.

what do other ctan admins think?
