I do not think that we will have millions of packages... freshmeat
lists around 35000 packages and we (Core + Extras) are currently at
2000 packages.

I would add the word 'high-quality' somewhere... Thousands of crappy
packages do not help somebody and make the repository useless.

Where can I download fe-pkg-lint? ;) IMO, you can detect only a small
class of errors by automatic tests, real QA needs human intervention.
