I'm terribly sorry, I don't mean this to discourage you but I find this site
highly disturbing. It reeks of those Windows software sites where one
got shady software because on Windows it is so hard to find software.

This also has the very strong problem of incentivating worse practice
actions from users by creating an habit of installing from shady places.

Malicious software is also the natural child of this kind of mentality.

Can't you merely make it an indexer to the official package trees?
