Well, the problem is that what you start from is wrong. These no longer 
are individual projects and to some degree never were. I'm not doing the 
QA myself.

You may have noticed that I include packages made by 4 different people, 
as I mentioned before and as was cleverly cut away in your reply, I only 
have to look at all the changes made by others, build the packages and 
sign them.

In the same sense your point is that Linus doesn't scale either.

"Fork Fedora Core development" ? 
"Protect newbies from running into trouble" ?

In the previous paragrph you stated you don't judge these 3rd repositories 
as bad. (scroll up)
