I think it's a very good idea. As a module maintainer (FreJND), I'm on the
list for more than a year. I submited a module on January 1st, and it's
still not in the beta repository. I asked friends to review it, but as it is
still not in beta, they can not install and test it. I saw on the wiki beta
