In the past, the pkgdb was seen as a developer-only tool so it wasn't
too interesting too the general public.  However, as part of GSoC,
maploin has done some good work to change that.  The interface is a
little rough still but there are now end-user features (package build
information like repoview, user-supplied tagging and commenting) in the
development repo (not deployed yet).
