Well, we have those tools running, the fact that we discontinued that
work was due to other issues... and yes I agree it's good to have
something that works, that does not mean we have to strive all the
time for workarounds (even from the beginning ;).

The tools work in general with a repository, which is just a view from

show additional info if it has access to dak's projectdb.

For the packages.d.o:


For debtags:

  <http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/debtags/web/trunk/> and maybe
