I do not agree on this, if the package is good enough and has somebody willing
to maintain it, the package may belong to the archive.

If the package is on the archive it will get automatic and manual QA tests, and
it can take advantage on all the already existing tools(PTS, DDPO, BTS, etc).

but if we set yet another archive that will be open for anyone (like PPA) we will
get packages with low quality, and maybe some users blaming debian about the
quality being dropped when they confuse this and think those are official
