One comment, two questions Taco :

C1: Great idea; this project has my wholehearted support.

Q1: When you write "In short, anything that cannot be on
TeX Live but can still legally be distributed over the
Internet can have a place on TLContrib.", does this not
open a hole rather wider than you intended.  Should there
not be a limitation to "anything that can ... and which
is relevant to TeX" ?

Q2: When you write "Quick start: to use this site as a
TeX Live repository, point the TeX Live package manager
to http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010. If you want to
know more details about using TLContrib, see the
using TLContrib page.", does this mean that I (and
others) can use /solely/ TLContrib henceforth, or
will it be necessary to re-point the TeX Live package
manager at a "normal" TL node for some purposes ?
