I Also think this is great idea that would help to coordinate at least
If packager doesn't appear in IRC or some other (Mailing list) he could
not commit packages to contrib. Then there should be 'Official' marked
contrib packages (Those
should be endorsed in search) and there should be normal packages that are
mentioned with warning that this ain't
anyhow supported by openSUSE community (or they are not tested). Support is
provided only by packager (Same like horrible
SSL marker as Firefox 3.x has). Duplication is not bad as we think is just
stupid in this case.
First we need Wiki page and times there when appear in place (Then I think
little advertisiment) and
some to keep IRC minutes up as secretary.
Currently very drunk candidate of openSUSE Board :P
