 I tried to explain this project there :

- allow to browse the package database, provide the main informations about
> packages, like any other distribution does (see
> http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages for example).

or like http://sophie.zarb.org for
http://sophie.zarb.org/rpm/cooker,/gcompris gcompris package (would be in
task-edu ?)

- focus on interaction between users, testers and packagers (backports
> requests and voting, new soft requests and voting, and the other way round :
> testing requests from packagers to users)

well, sophie does not address this, indeed :)

> - customizable user notifications on your home page, RSS feed or e-mail
> (new backport available for you preferred soft, new update candidate
> available and awaiting testing...)

additions to sophie (nearly existing)

congrats, from what I've seen, it's approved by the board :-)

o_O tell the difference between what exists and what could be added :)

Right now, I'm mainly interested in your comments on this project, and also

I think that addition to what exists should be privileged, be it sophie or
http://doc4.mandriva.org (when it works :/). Existing solutions being added
and analysed at the bottom of
http://mageiacauldron.tuxfamily.org/MageiaAppDb and appropriately documented
when it answers practical requirements :-) (yeah voting is all a part of it
being successful imho :D people taking in charge being a reason for
effective success).
