I have long thought we might employ an alternative scheme
akin to a "planet" aggregator.  Make the module index
an aggregator from module authors providing and
maintaining their own descriptions as DOAP files.
That way an author doesn't have to go through any
manual process or moderation to update entries,
and the admin burden is reduced.

We still have to bootstrap new authors wanting us to
aggregate their DOAP URLs.  We could fully automate it
for committers by auto-approving apache.org URLs,
leaving a much reduced space for manual moderation
and still vulnerable to spam attacks.

Then we can reduce that further by requiring oauth
as you suggest.  And once the OpenMiracl podling
has a TA up-and-running, we can deploy that to
help open a wider circle of strong trust.

Just a thought.
