I agree that comments are not terribly useful on community packages,
but I think they're important for [unsupported]. Maybe for community
packages, only allow comments from the *maintainer* (or TU). My
preference is to leave it as is. Granted, sometimes people report
issues for community packages on the comment page, but that's no worse
than people emailing the maintainer directly (since that's still not
on the bug tracker), and is better because it's more visible.
