Although I support the vision of a single "big" Playground repository, I
see a benefit in having this other repository concept. Maybe it could
just be an "index" of "starred" COPRs that:
1) have undergone some automatic review / QA, or
2) are being (co)-maintained by the same people that (co)-maintain the
software in Fedora's main repository (e.g. Slavek's python-3.4 COPR), or
3) are being (co)-maintained by provenpackagers, or
...?
