Should we open a "staging" repo in addition to the free and
which would hold unreviewed packages that could be improved in the staging
area in a wiki-like style and then easily transferred to the proper repos?
I don't think it is a good idea. If an external (i.e. non RPM Fusion)
package maintainer hasn't the time or the will to submit packages for
review, I don't think he will have time or will to use our
infrastructure. And if this is not true and they will use our
infrastructure, they are just one little step away to be part of RPM
Fusion (i.e. they only have to submit a package for review).
I can be wrong, of course. But the only way to check this is to ask
external package maintainer what they think.
