Package quality is an issue indeed, but I'd prefer an "open repository" (does
that term already exist?) over packages spread all over the web even if
quality suffers from that. One could improve packages later on and then
include them into pkg-fso/debian.
If people get to know their future favourite software by finding it on $repo
and then go and improve the package so that it can be included in debian,
that would be the way I'd go... (Which implies people knowing that $repo
isn't the final place to go.)
