I said to read the instructions in there, namely this:

    # All subpackages should be commented out in the version
    # committed to the repository. This prevents build problems
    # for people who are not actively working with these
    # potentially unstable packages.

    # You can put a list of modules you want to always enable in the
    # file 'enabled_packages.txt' in this directory (you'll have to create it).
    # Since this isn't under version control, it's less likely you'll
    # check it in and screw other people up :-)
