As an addition, I would like to see a button to remove the app
altogether, i.e. also from devel. It happened to me that I reported a
bug on an application that was removed from testing as requested by its
maintainer but not from devel.

Another idea that comes to my mind is the possibility of subscribing to
package events: build (ok, failed, etc.), entering devel/testing/extras,
demotion and so on. For example, I'd like to be notified when some of my
favourite packages move into testing so that I can retest them.
