I agree. I've modified it to only list packages with actual problems.

It's an attempt to weigh in the user impact of a problem with a specific package. A package used by thousands could be considered more urgent to fix than a package used by a handful. It's crude, but the best suggestion I've heard so far.

The list was never really intended to be a "healt status" page, though. It's just a bit of fun statistics I made since I already have the data parsed and available. If it can be made useful, that's a bonus.

As always, I'm open for suggestions.
