Might be a good idea, yes. The host it currently runs on is however
co-administrated by three DDs, so not too far from Debian anyways. :)
However, qa.d.o or bugs.d.o might be a more appropriate place - but I
don't mind enough.

The comments are per package for a reason: It was introduced to allow
comments like "don't bother, this package will go away anyways".
I considered more than once to add for packages, but I somehow fear that
this might be used to put information that should go into the bug report
to that page instead - that would be a mistake.

Hm. It is open source somehow (iow, there are more than one DD who have
access to it; most even write access) - but I never figured out how to
package it best or so. I'll put that on my work list, but be warned that
that list is rather long. :)
