It covers a relatively small subset of packages right now; what do you think
the criteria should be for adding a new package?
It seems to serve two purposes: one for the direct benefit of developers
working on the package (in which case we should be willing to monitor
additional packages to help them), the other as a means to help people get
involved where they can make the most difference (in which case we should
keep the set of packages on the front page small).
