The packages themselves can't be made available until they've left the
NEW queue. Whether on spohr or merkel, doesn't make a difference. What
seems like it should be possible would be automatically running the "dak
examine-package" tool and providing that output on a public webpage for
other people to review. That currently uses neat markup that colourises
things for less, so presumably isn't tremendously compatible with the
web though. Presumably someone could change that if they were so enthused.

(Personally, I'd consider a patch that gives examine-package a
--html-output option pretty good evidence that someone's got enough m4d
skillz to be made an ftpassistant, others mileage may vary)
