I think the two things are related, but separate. If you're willing to 
maintain the page you could add all packages that people advertise,
but nudge people towards providing the package in the preferred
format, for instance by adding a prominent PyMacAutoInstall icon to all
packages that use that installer. Other packages would get a boring
text link only:-)

And there are also links to non-installable things like manuals in
various formats, etc.
