Yes, I understand how that is reasonable and agree completely.

What I do not understand is how this would conflict with a repository
listing feature.
I mean, if the user is logged in as himself, just show him the
repositories that you want him to know about?

Therefore I assumed that darix does not use any kind of authentication
mechanism for his users, and that's why he disagreed with having a
repository listing feature. I suggested that eg. a simple
login/password system should be put in use.
