I think we also need to consider why I am adding karma. It is a crowd
sourcing mechanism. Since the registry does not have karma, we do not
attract many users who want recognition for linking a package to an
upstream project, or upload a release. I am adding karma. If this does
not work for the time line, we need someone to commit to doing this
after work.
