I agree with that. On my opinion the package "weight" should be
calculated, considering the following parameters:

a) Number of closed bugs with the uploads.
b) ITA-ITP, ITA should get more points, than ITP.
c) Number of packages, maintained by applicant, his "experience".
d) Number of days the package hangs in the queue.

Not sure about coefficients between these parameters.

I think, it is useless. There should be only the opportunity to leave a
comment and mark a package as "please, fix it".
