Here are a few comments.

* It seems to me that you introduce the concepts of "developer", "package maintainer" and "author" which are all the same. It would be clearer if a single name was kept and used consistently.

* I'm not sure that "Date is in the ISO 8601 standard" is what you actually want as this is an incredibly flexible standard to represent date and time (e.g. you can use a year, week number and week day). What you are likely meaning is that the date is in the RFC 3339 standard, a sane subset of the ISO 8601 standard.

* Wouldn't it be better to bring the compiler-as-package work to an end before doing this so that you don't have to special case for them (and thus reduce the complexity, attack surface, etc.) ?
