We had planed a web-interface for this purpose. Work on it never really
started. We need one in the longer term, but somebody acutally has to to

Yeah, and I don't like that mess. We IMHO should create a proper
"namespace" for this (e.g. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packages) and
put all the packages with their proper name below that (e.g.
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packages/mail-notification )
