The intention, as I understand it, isn't to be a general-purpose package
repository (at least, last time I looked at it, no pre-built binary packages
were provided), but to be a "staging area" of sorts for packages which
people wanted sponsored into the archive.

The value of the packages therein is a subjective matter, and one which I,
for one, am not touching with my 10 foot pole (Barge, mk1, mod0).
