I wanted to have the discussion, but my position for now is that
we should continue as we have been and not change the policy.

I don't have a problem with any individual or group of individuals
publishing their own organic packages. The issue I have is with
making sure it is clear those *are* "organic" and not officially
supported by the broader community. One way to do that is to say
they need to be built somewhere other than on our shared infrastructure.
There may be other ways, though, so I'm looking for input on that.
