I was just thinking about adding the feature you have described. The
user downloads a plain text file named <app-name>.<extension>. This
file contains all repositories (one per line) needed by the AM to
download the application. Manage too many repositories can become very
annoying :).

I think many of the developers would like to upload the packages to
the "contrib" repository. Do you have more information about how to do
