I am the guy who has been packaging KOMA-Script for a while now. I have
automated so much of the upload process it takes me way less than 5 minutes
to get it done. And KOMA-Script consists of 1000s of files. Why don't you
create a make target which creates the necessary files for CTAN and upload
each major release. Your work seems to be pretty cool, it could be helpful
for a lot of users.

The TeX community has given you TeX/LaTeX, by providing your work to the
community you give something back. :-)
