I think the goal is to create a common infrastructure, creating a Debian
repository takes resources that some do not have. apt-get.org is great
if you know about pinning and such but otherwise using it can really
bork your system, mentors is a hosting service for packages which will
be part of Debian, at some point. What is needed is a properly
constructed archive, with some of the same procedures NEW, buildds etc.
For packages such as qmail which are useful, but which for some reason
can't be supported in Debian. I also see this as a way for NMs to show
their stuff without the sometimes painfully slow sponsorship process.
