Actually i don't get that reasoning. You want to care for some packages.
This is the same as being their maintainer. And i think it's pretty difficult

You know you can have saved searches as you wish?
F.ex. i'm using one showing me Junior Jobs but leaving out new package requests

All of those are available from
