/me wonders whether some concept of namespaces in package names would be useful before we make it too easy for world + dog to run large repositories of .debs - Ximian was bad enough on its own, last I had to recover a system from someone using it... I dread to think how many versions of things like libgtksomeguicrapthatkeepsmakingabichanges (all mutually conflicting, and all required by something you *really need*) we'll end up with if people are easily able to maintain separate repositories.
