Yes, I know, that was not the point. I was proposing a lighter process for a

As Alain mentioned, the current process is rather involved for package 
developers --- but I disagree with his idea of an upload web interface.

The idea is that package developers publish repos with their work

Concretely, I guess that publish a repo means setting up a server somewhere. I don't think that everyone can easily do that or want to invest so much effort only to submit a single package.

What's the benefit of the git/github submission workflow? I don't immediately see how this is easier for people responsible of accepting/rejection packages than, say, something based on an upload interface (or even simpler, an email with an attachment).
