I would go a step further than Stefan and say that MELPA is basically the 
archetype of not-fine in this domain: finding a package in MELPA means, 
basically "someone, somewhere, wrote some code that might do something, in some 
of the versions I've had at some point". Finding a package in GNU ELPA (or a 
handful of other elpa repositories) adds things like "this version should 
actually do what's written on the tin" to potentially-interesting properties 
like "copyrights already assigned" and "can be fixed by interested emacs 

I hope that helps,
