       It would help me if listings could be flagged when a developer moves
       them from the unfinshed section to the finshed section:

   I thought that you check all changes in the directory--developers
   can't just insert their own changes.  Isn't that right?

Yes, it is.

I was referring to a Web interface through which developers can enter
their own packages. Someone could conceivably enter a new version that
they consider finished (but actually is not) into the finished section
and then delete or ignore the beta version in the unfinished
section. I would ideally catch this, delete the unfinished version and
dicuss things with the developer, but it would be easier if it could
just be flagged in some way.

Perhaps I am overly concerned with a level of deviousnes that we will
not encounter. I hope so.

Also, what about deleting packages? I would prefer that I could be the
only one to do that. Again, I may be concerned with maliciousnes that
we will not ancounter. 

   We would naturally treat this the same way.  The developer couldn't
   directly change an entry from unfinished status to ready-to-use
   status; he would have to ask you to make that change.
