Garret is here this week and we work on a new Web interface JFYI-

We think that by default everthing should be below the home: namespace. We can
make the projects more official by moving it to a different namespace.
A guru or KDE or ... namespace for certain groups would be possible as well.

yes, we need to clean this up, before we make the BS real public ...

There are two cases. You can either get direct write access to the project, by
the project owner.
You can also create "a linked package with patch" to suggest a change. The
tools will make this hopefully very easy. We have already the first version
of package linking support in the Web interface.
Such a modification can be linked easily later by the original project owner.
