Yes, getting good META files is important.  Debian require them and
have done so for ages, and just today I changed the Fedora guidelines
so that META files are no longer optional but are required, must be
checked by reviewers _and_ must be submitted to upstream developers.
I hope this will improve the quality of META files.
