I agree with this.

And I wonder how the build server is really meant to be used as a
collaboration tool. I think having a clear common picture of that
would give me a better understanding of what is really missing.

Perhaps prior to an individual introducing a package, that package
particulars should be broadcast to a wiki/database for simi-automagic

information to preclude duplicated efforts.

Maybe, yes. Maybe the obs could also support people in dropping old,
outdated package versions.

Hermes could even annoy maintainers about hosting an old package
version. As it could annoy maintainers about new package versions
that are available.

Yet then you'd need a flag to tell 'Yes I know. This is the
maintained version, that needs to be here, too, for compatibility.'

And the obs could help users to find a 'good' package based on the
ratings Marko is working on or based on actual test results of real

provide prepackaged, tested open source software? On the distro of

Appears the need for another wiki page with a call for collaboration.
There definitely needs to be an easy way to help channel work efforts
away from duplications.
