Excellent idea. A wishlist page would simplify the process
considerably as well as allowing yourselves to see how much people are
actually prepared to do in order to have the package that they want as
part of the distro provided extras.

I have no real problem with pulling in packages from other third party
repos (and very much appreciate the efforts made by all to provide
these resources :-) ) but to my mind it is tidier to get everything i
need from the one source and if i can contribute to that effort in any
way then all the better.
