If at least any NEW queue package information was accessible, people
could take an interest. If there's a problem with allowing access to the
new packages themselves, cool, but there used to be at least some
information on merkel.d.o's mirror of ftp.d.o (disabled for load
problems for over a year) and more, e.g. the .katie files if not also
the whole .diff.gz and .changes - leave the orig.tar.gz and the .debs if
these are problematic, could likely be made available for inspection at
least for DDs.
Letting people make suggestions for rejecting packages that they've
found mistakes should be not very dangerous to the archive.
1. I freely admit that I've not asked for it recently.
