Are you kidding ?

It s already a pain ...

And that section list isn t usefull for maemo, no theme for example.

"Maemo doesn’t currently use package priorities for anything. For
future compatibility, please conform to the Debian policy. "
Maybe but there is a repository priority.

"Separating files into binary packages (new section)"
Hum so it s mean 45 gcompris packages in HAM ... (just one example)

"Localiation packages"
Could be a solution to let think user that there is plentapps
available. Someone have already use HAM ? Scroll to the end of the
list is a pain.

Just my two cents.
