What functions are needed for the tlpdb?

Is there somewhere a list of necessary functionality?

I could imagine things like
 - adding a package
 - removing a package
 - changing the entries of a package

What else?
And: where do the information comes from?
Will the categorization be derived from the
location of the files in the directory-tree?
And from the filename-extension (*.sty, *.pdf, *.tex)?

Or will there be necessarily someone who must check the
classification of the files?

So: what is part of human action, and what will/should/can be done
by the tlpdb-software automatically?
