some quick impressions:

I think the layout is pretty usable, I like the tabs for recently
changed and most visited
(maybe "most visited" could be replaced by "most popular" or "most
downloaded" if we want to use download statistic instead of visits,
which might include robots as Pauli mentioned
most downloaded won't work for packages that have a link instead of
code to download)

I have problems reading low contrast headers and tags (blue on blue or
grey on grey)

I don't like blue borders much anymore, they give it a bit of
old-fashioned look.
