This seems a good idea.
However, it is possible for a thirdy part user to submit build logs for 
a specific platform?

In detail:
- The package author submit his package, and additional build logs
   for each platform he have access to
- Other users can submit additional build logs for their platform

I think, however, that a centralized system has its advantages.
As an example, a newly submitted package can be put in a 'incoming 
queue', and moved to the final destination only if it builds (and tests 
succeed) on all the supported platforms.
