Sorry, I think I misunderstood the thread, I thought you wanted to
redesign the current web views of Debian packages so that it is somehow
more trendy/modern, but I now realised you only want to find it a
trendier/more modern name.

I stand corrected.

However, if after finding it a new name you'd like to keep going and add
things like ratings, comments, tag clouds and whatnot, you can go back
to my messages in this thread and know where to start :)
