I second suggestion given at #250202 and like to see "unpacked" and "patched" 
targets to hit Policy 4.8.

I would suggest as a beginning to start with one section (e.g. base) and just 
count which packages miss targets like this and file a wishlist bugs against 
them (possibly a post-sarge job), and when these targets hit policy just 
raise the bug severity.

Why cvs ? Gonzui also supports svn. Don't you think it can handle the load ? 
Which debian suites, which sections ? Maintaining the whole thing up-to-date 
in revision control system would be an overkill I guess ;-)
