Just as a small remark, you could have done it yourself without the manager asking. I was late with making the draw in Orleans and someone just made the draw, which helped me a lot! So if you saw that this problem would arise, you could ask for it in the thread before the deadline (don't know if you did) and otherwise make it yourself.
But I completely agree that an entrylist should be made before the deadline!
I must say that I didn't know about Entry Lists not being posted until it was said here. I'm not playing in Orleans so I don't know what's going on there, I'm just aware of the ones I play in. That's why I said 'ask someone to post an Entry List for you, I'm sure anyone commited to your tournament would have helped you.'
In fact, last week in Szcecin, Evita didn't post the Entry List so I PM him asking if I could help posting the Entry List and then I PM'd him the Entry List to publish.
