The [community] repo is - in my non-dev, non-TU very humble opinion - a
repository for packages that are perhaps not as widely used as those in
[core] or those in [extra] but still used by enough users, so that it's
reasonable to provide them in binary form, providing that there is a way
to do so. I always figured that there is only so many devs and only so
many packages a single dev can maintain, which leads to a limited number
of packages in [core]/[extra]. That's why there are TUs and that's why
there is [community] - so that the number of packages provided in binary
form (by people that hopefully can be trusted) is larger.
But what I actually wanted most to say was "amen" to your e-mail, Allan,
I think you've summarized feelings of many people...
