Seth is working on this.  I haven't looked at it because not all
packages are reviewed yet.... and therefore not all packages are going
to have proper Source: lines or comments conforming to the Guidelines.

That's true.  Although there are a few things that hosted definitely
lacks before we're ready to take it out of beta.  Off the top of my head:

* free form web space.  That allows hosting yum repos for the projects,
download sites, non-trac-wiki space, etc.

* Move the repositories to a separate server from the one that hosts our
package SCM.  (Waiting on hardware for this)
