What about these new scripts? How about something like every n hours,
using a Perl script which essentially does:
for every file in /debian/debbugs/db/*.report
- if it's new or been changed in the last n hours, run the CGI script
to regenerate the bug page, and note the package it's in
Finally, regenerate all of the affected packages' pages
To avoid having to figure out which packages have been affected, one
could always make the debbugs scripts note in a log file any package
which has been affected, and then use that file every n hours.
