I've always seen this as a team effort, easily as our signatures as Pentaxians would be overlooked on DxO's busy radar if we didn't amplify them now and then by acting together
Absolutely. The point is underlined when you see from the DxO forum how many other claims there are on DxO's resources. And for every lens, there are numerous modules to be created.

I wouldn't invest so much energy if I didn't know how PhotoLab can make our Pentax DNG's shine, and if it wasn't so much fun editing in it.
Amen.

Shot this morning, utilizing ambient light, K-3 at ISO's 5000 and 4000, respectively. These shouldn't look all that great, but processed to taste in PL5, they didn't come out half as bad:
Those are wonderful examples. I see from your site that you have a whole troupe of gorgeous models on hand, which helps.

Thanks again, Des, glad you enjoyed my humble efforts. Yep, the abundance of available talent sure helped, although three out of the litter of four have meanwhile found new homes. It was the first time I witnessed a cat giving birth, and it's nothing short of a little wonder. They all have their own personalities, and on that account I would have loved to keep the white one (Shiro) besides Shiori, the dark tabby you saw in the samples. But they grow up and you have to feed and sustain them, and particularly in these uncertain times you have to remain responsible.

A little off-the-cuff pet journalism certainly helps to compensate for not being able to pursue more substantial photo projects when life and work intervene, as they so often do. And when the little critters are gone, it's only the memories and the images that remain (so you'd better take halfway decent ones while you can).

+++ UPDATED ON 7 OCT 2022 +++

On 5 October, DxO PhotoLab 6 was released. Checking in the trial version (v6.0.0 Build 3) reveals that profiles for
  • HD Pentax-D FA 21mm F2.4 ED Limited DC WR
  • HD Pentax-FA 31mm F1.8 Limited
  • HD Pentax-FA 43mm F1.9 Limited
  • HD Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited
are available now, whereas the one for
  • HD Pentax- DA* 16-50mm F2.8 ED PLM AW
hasn't materialized yet. Well, that's at least a start, I guess, and the DA* profile may see the light of day fairly soon. DxO staffer Marie hinted on their forum two days ago that they "will add more (i.e. lens profiles) before Christmas".

With the new 100 Macro just released, I submitted a lens module suggestion from within the PL6 trial for
This looks to be a meaningful upgrade to a classic piece of Pentax glass, kept affordable too, so feel free to submit yours. Let's show them that there's enough demand to justify a dedicated module. ✊

Note that currently for the FA limited, on PL5 the software doesn't differ between the SMC and HD Versions, it updates the profiles to the HD Versions. Whether you want it or not. This is a recognized bug. DXO promised to solve the bug with the next update which was stated to take around 1 month.

That's not the experience I had just the other day. I had already installed the SMC module for my HD 31. I then loaded the HD module. When I navigated to a folder with pictures taken with this lens, there was a yellowish/orange indicator on all the pictures taken with the 31. When I clicked on it, it allowed me to choose which module it should take for the image, with the option to apply that one to all the images in that folder. I have uninstalled the SMC module afterwards, and now it does not show me the indicator anymore.
