Here's one problem: new contributors won't have access to the third-party service and will need to set up their own indexes from scratch, but the scripts or whatever to do that probably won't be maintained because
existing contributors won't need them.  It's healthier for the project if anyone can just download the codebase and hack on it without signing up for some third party service.

By the way, I think there's a good project in here and I'm willing to contribute my 2c and maybe more, but I know I'll lose any discussion in this thread.  I'm following this one: https://github.com/dlang/dub-registry/issues/93

Two standard solutions:

1. make a tiny webservice for it have one set up for production and another one for testing.

2. make a tiny local in-memory emulator for it (no need for advanced matching or ranking)

(I didn't quite get the argument about "losing")
