I think peer review is the best way to do -in this case, computational-
science. But some hackers accept better peer criticism than others, we
had some flames in the past to prove it. So I think a mix of peer
review and a bit of arbitrage from FSF would do.

Not all criteria are equally obvious to everybody. I've always thought
that having full independent mirrors for all binary and source packages
is mandatory. I think it is in fact what makes a distribution: you
distribute things, not a third party.
