Well, I thought about something like that when writing the mail. It
sounds fine for most cases, but sometimes, it may be a good idea to add
some more discussion with an applicant before they're free to upload on
their own. 
For example, from a QA point of view, it sounds like a good idea to
speak a bit about library packaging when an applicant wants to maintain
a library.  Even if you get the initial package right, there are *so*
many pitfalls that bugs are easily added.
