The next thing would be is to list out the packages which has the 
packages as the canonical source, contact the developers and ask them if 
they are willing to move to hosted. We might get valuable input on where 
hosted is lacking for them and we can finally announce hosted as not 
being in beta anymore if that is still the status.

IMO, we should avoid having SRPM as canonical source if not entirely get 
rid of that practice.
