I can give the example I had on Mandriva: I did some work on 'rpm'
package itself, but since breaking this pakage would have lock the whole
Bs I'd prefer to first have it tested by some people.
This directory is in this case the perfect place. At this time,
"testing" media did not exists thought.

Another example could be the XFCE live Cd done by some people in past,
hosted on distrib-coffee as mandriva where not able to push it on thier
mirror (this issue get solved latelly).

Pushing something on the mageia Mirror need some control. The people
place give the opportunity to contributors to distribute somethings w/o
needing "super user" privileges, but with a clear "unofficial" state.

I am pretty sure some people will find usage to it.
