And btw, if we want to scale ever, we need to learn to build up trust
and rely on the individual package developers ensure painstakingly that
the used source code tarballs are fine. I mean, we have a process for
new packages, which require approval even for RH employees, but
subsequent version upgrades [and their uploads to lookaside cache]
probably are not reviewed beyond what's visible in cvs commit diffs
(well, except for new contributors perhaps).
