(Hope i have this right!)

It looks like there's some confusion here -
Paul is talking about packages added to the base system that are not in
our upstream (including nethack, emacs, and bsd-games), brian is talking
about packages build/added to the distro that are not in upstream /at all/.

Our artwork package is probably another that counts as 'new for us'
rather then 'from upstream', but I'm not entirely sure if thats true.
