I'd expect a rash of package contributions as hordes of new
debian users come online. If it gets out of hand, and it well
may, we'll need some sort of traffic-cop mechanism on new packages.
That'll probably need one or more volunteers to filter submitted
packages and/or some sort of pre-submission consultation mechanism.
Whatever the mechanism is, it should have a kind and gentle approach
to dealing with prospective package submitters.
(I don't consider myself qualified to be part of that mechanism)
