You never tried to say "no" to a packager. Most of them all go with a frenzy phase of "let's add as much stuff we can to the distro, because users ask for it and threathen to go elsewhere". Then, that go to "we need more packager to take care of that", then "we need more QA and people doing the boring bits", except that boring stuff are not done, because that's boring.
A solution would be to take in account ressources as a whole, ie, you cannot upload a package unless there is enough people to take care for QA and updates.
But such view are far from being popular IMHO ( and most users do not care, like most do not care about sustainability ).
